    I worked at MFS full-time

    Pros

    New office space is great and in great location. Very nice colleagues; I only met one jerk the whole time I was there. The best retirement plan I've ever seen (which partially offsets the middling pay).

    Cons

    The pace was too slow. Technology was dated (they were on Windows XP and Server 2003 in 2013). Nobody ever seemed to hustle. Owing to the slow pace, opportunity to grow and practice new technology skills is slim. If you were dropped into the middle of the office and got to look over people's shoulders as they worked, you would be forgiven for thinking it is 2005.

    Advice to Management

    Let's be frank, here: MFS is an investment management company, not an IT company. In view of their overall aims (great investment management for institutions), they do well. They just shouldn't expect skilled technologists to stick around with how things are going.

    I worked at MFS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One big happy family, lot of training oppportunities. They are very concerned about your advancement as an employee and as a person. Work life balance is amazing

    Cons

    Due to the very low turnover rate, opportunities to move up are few and far between. Such as taking 10 years to become a low level group manager.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of red tape due to regulatory requirements but I think most of that can be removed as well as multiple automated processes that require extensive human interaction which takes you away from your job duties.

    Advancement became very political. Many people try to avoid taking risk for fear of negative consequences. You had to be part of the right group to advance
