    lots of work, good place to learn but the place is run by cowboys, gotta watch your back

    Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- beautiful office space and working environment
    - some cool co-workers
    - great place to learn and be very busy

    Cons- has got a fair share of selfish and angry employees, watch your back, don't trust your manager
    - work environment can be unprofessional
    - promise one thing, deliver another. they lured me with the promise of a certain bonus and didn't even come close...every year there was another excuse (ie our fund didn't do as expected, you make more than your peers, etc...)
    - some clients said they'd never do business with Marathon again, this concerned me and is why I left

    Advice to Senior Management- do more 360 degree reviews and fire the senior executives who don't know how to manage
    - focus more on clients and making them happy, so they will do business with you again

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No room for advancement. don't get stuck here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosthe midtown location was nice, I guess. The view was also quite nice.

    ConsThe culture was a poor fit for my personality (ie: an awesome person.) Little room for advancement. The office is understaffed, and promotions/bonuses did not seem to be merit/performance-based. If you're hoping for a shop that rewards enthusiastic people who start from the ground up and have a willingness to learn, move along and find a smaller, newer fund to work at.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees- even the entry-level ones!

    Good benefits

    Personal Assistant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsFinancially looked after (good bonus) except for maternity benefits which is only statutory,surprising for a successful financial firm

    ConsStatutory maternity benefit is poor in comparison to other finance firms.Not much interaction between different departments,more company mtgs would b good.
