    Pros

    One of the biggest asset managers around. Good culture. Friendly, intelligent. Flexible hours.

    Nothing negative to say really. It is a well run company.

    Advice to Management

    Again, nothing to say here. They are doing a great job.

    Pros

    Great group of direct peers. Because they want to get people in the door you do get to work with a diverse group of people.

    Cons

    The organization is unstable in what it can offer. It has been in an unsteady place since 2008 and you are unsure of what may happen next.

    I worked at Nuveen full-time

    Pros

    This is one of the best investment firms in the city and country. They are very friendly and smart. It is a very good community there.

    Cons

    There are no bad things to say about this place, it is great. It was a very good working environment and that's all.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to the management. They are great, everything is great, and everyone is great.

    Pros

    Can be an exciting place to work. Offers opportunity to help produce revenue for the firm and share in the upside.

    Cons

    Culture and atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. A few bad apples create a toxic atmosphere that demoralize the working environment. Unfortunately management tends to overlook this so witch hunting goes on unchecked.

    Pros

    None that I can think of at this moment.

    Cons

    They shutdown their division in Radnor because it was making corporate IT look bad. Radmor division was too efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Get new head of IT

    I worked at Nuveen full-time

    Pros

    The Century City offices were very nicely remodeled. They provided free lunches and threw nice Christmas parties until the company started shrinking in size. I loved people I worked.

    Cons

    They don't like to move you around or let you grow in the company. I've asked to be transferred to different teams as I wanted to expand my role, but they never even considered it. And no, it's not like I had no background or education in those areas. They told me I was good at what I was doing and they wanted me in the same position year after year. There was really no challenge, work wise.

    I have been working at Nuveen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid back culture, good benefits including 100% tuition reimbursement and 50% health insurance match. Great work life balance: average 40 hours per week.

    Cons

    Pay is on the low end compared to the average, but I guess that's the trade off for work life balance. There's not much room for promotions/career advancement.

    Pros

    Nuveen is a progressive company, investing in technology and is an exciting place to work

    Cons

    Lean staff. Try to do more with less. Need to look at staffing levels

    Advice to Management

    Invest in People and part of process and technology
