Terrifying Management culture in Neuberger Operation

Operation Analyst (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Neuberger Berman full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIf you like a 9am to 5pm flexible job that does not challenges your analytical view, this is the place for you. However, the terrible management culture makes these benefits worthless.

ConsAbusive management with no proffessional training are making their own work rules. Human ressource is too weak to supervise them. Stay away from the Operation department.
There are no career mobility at this firm, age group is from 29 to 55. The cover up is projects that are not aligned with its business goals. Management can't retain any talented employees and reward inneficiencies to keep their positions safe and empower employees.

Advice to Senior Management-Keep your projects aligned with your business goals
-It's the 21st century, train your management team. A culture changeleads by examples not just beautiful words in writing.
-Treat employees better at workplace and provide competitive salaries not just ice cream and cookies.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Has changed over the last year.

Advice to Senior ManagementPartners should take a look at the changes implemented in the last 2 years and adjust.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been here for 4 monhts and have already started interveiwing elsewhere.

Operations Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Neuberger Berman full-time for less than a year

ProsCo-workers are freindly and easy to get along with. The hours are flexible and I can sometimes work from home.

ConsPay is low
401k could be much better, espeacially considering that we are an investment company
Technology is very outdated.
Everyday is perpetually worse than the day before.

I just want to add that I was at my last job in the same industry for 5 years and really enjoyed it, but we decided to relocate to NYC for personal reasons and I took the first job that was offered. However I did think that this could have been a great oppurtunity and that I could advance in the company. I was mistaken, I look around at people who have been here 10+ years and are still at my level. I personally don't like interviewing and didn't want to job hop, but I have no choice. This place flat out sucks.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut some money and resources into operations, its not 1993 anymore. Also you could think about changing the structure of the 401k. Last year at my old company matched 100% of my first 4% and then 50% of my contribtuions up to 10%, not to mention my end of year performance bonus match. I contributed 6% and they matched 5% in addition to the 8% bonus, that is 13%; I got 0% from NB becuase I hadn't been here a year yet. Your "Robust" compensation plan that I was told about turned out to be pure "BS."

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
