    I have been working at NEPC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Encourages growth within the firm. Best culture I have worked in since leaving school. For the most part, people are interested in seeing you succeed.

    Cons

    There are times when compensation may appear to be lower than what is truly deserved, but it is mostly the consultant business model itself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide employees with opportunities to grow. Keep junior level employees updated on business plans of the company.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Senior management is approachable and genuinely cares about employees. The same can't always be said for practice group leaders; however, that isn't to say that they don't care at all. Opportunities to stretch yourself are there if you know how to navigate the hierarchy.

    Cons

    Jumping through hoops should be included in the job description.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more active role in developing the next generation of management and leaders internally. External hires only work for so long and end up being more costly in the end.

    Flex Fridays in the summer. That's it! SOME (when I say some I literally mean a hand full) great people to work with

    Cons

    LOW PAY (super UNDERPAID) Favoritism dog eat dog They act like they care and they DO NOT VERY VERY VERY HIGH turnover rate Sneaky People

    Advice to Management

    Get your head from your nether region. Remember there is a little thing called karma, so be careful. And stop driving Mr. Charlton's hard work to the ground because thats whats happening

    Wealth of Investment knowledge at your disposal

    Inconsistent messaging and policy implementation which seems to be very selective.

    I worked at NEPC full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

    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

    Very nice people who care about you and want you to be happy.

    Cons

    Limited mobility, especially since the company is so small.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of change

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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.


  11. Segmented work environment, competitive, individualistic, provides an opportunity to learn.

    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 Management

    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
