    Pros

    A great investment firm with a strong culture and a promising future. NB is the best large assets manager to work for

    Cons

    It has the challenges of any 2000 person firm. It is hard for it to be the ideal place for everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The trajectory is inspiring

    Pros

    Client focused. Remarkable culture. Clear strategy and promising future. It is remarkable how the firm has developed after gaining its independence - what a story.

    Cons

    None meaningful. It would be nice if people could rotate assignments, but that is not realistic in this business unfortunately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course! Well done

    Pros

    Great hours, ridiculously smart people, great atmosphere, one big family. Other employees are very accessible and are always helpful and informative.

    Cons

    Most people are entrenched. Implications are that the mobility is a little difficult; the workers are all experienced and are near end-career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seems to be moving the company in a strong upward direction. After recently leaving Lehman Brothers, the company has been working to maintain and expand its position.
