    Pros

    Friendly young analysts.
    Good industry exposure for those just starting out in finance.
    CFA & CAIA reimbursement.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunity; both professional & personal.
    Small firm with large firm feel (i.e. upper management can be cold & disconnected at times).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increased investment in the development of your employees will lead to less turnover and a boost in moral. Encourage greater/ broader interaction between Analysts & Consultants

    Current Employee - Intern in Cambridge, MA

    Pros

    The overall work environment and treatment of their employees was the best reason for working at NEPC. They truely cared about their employee satisfaction.

    Cons

    Overall the work was unexiting and uninvolving. It is not as fast paced industry as the rest of the financial world. There is also little room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management would be to have more trust in employee knowledge and capabilities. If this was more the case, I think the overall company would benefit from more innovation.

    Current Employee - Consultant in Cambridge, MA

    Pros

    People really care and they want to do the best job for clients. You can be recognized for your contributions and promoted from analyst to consultant.

    Cons

    PAs burn-out and turnover. Not sure senior managmement has a vision for the future. Its tougher to grow now and we have not been able to pay people the same as before. You get different answers to questions when you ask different people running the company or even my team leader vs. another team leader. Not sure everyone's on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear goals and let everyone know what they are and what we are trying to do. We can't be everything. Also, maybe we should think about selling to someone bigger with deeper pockets.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA

    Pros

    Great place to learn - very smart people, who are passionate about what they do
    Growth and advancement opportunities for strong performers
    Management cares - they listen to feedback and try to work to make changes
    Great benefits
    Well respected in the industry

    Cons

    Expectations are very high - can be last minute requests with tight deadlines or changes at last minute - both can lead to long hours. Really depends on your manager. Is not that way for me personally.

    Former Employee - Portfolio Analyst in Cambridge, MA

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn
    Exposure to investment professionals internal and external
    Limited supervision, freedom to prioritize as you see fit

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for growth
    Satisfaction depends on where you are in the hierarchy
    No real sense of a team environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a sustainable evaluation system of analyst performance, same goes for the advancement opportunities. Provide a clear frame work and support to analysts, and reduce subjectivity and the amount of supervisors per each analyst

    Good learning environment, but lacks communication

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Cambridge, MA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA

    Pros

    The majority of employees are concerned with furthering their education. Some just want to earn a designation to get promoted or get a raise. Others are genuinely interested in knowledge, which creates a very motivating and inspiring atmosphere.

    Cons

    There seems to be some inefficiencies in communication between departments. This creates some divisions between employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management needs to concentrate on integrating work between consultants and researchers. It seems that currently their is too much separation, leading to miscommunications.
