    Pros

    Smart co-workers, good salary and benefits, great location, financially sound, reasonable work/life balance

    Cons

    Current lack of strategic direction. No CEO. Parent company (NY Life) exerting greater control and influence over day-to-day operations. Eliminated entire US equity division in 2009.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This was a fantastic place to work for many years, but the firm appears to have lost strategic direction and momentum. It is a shame that NY Life is exerting so much more control over day-to-day operations.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great location, nice offices, reasonable senior leadership on a day-to-day basis, pleasant working conditions, good resources were available (technology, travel).

    Cons

    New York Life appears to have taken control of the company, which was not the case in the past. Recently eliminated equity department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enoyed working at the firm more when it wasn't so directly controlled by New York Life. But I have to say my experience at MacKay was mostly positive.
