    Pros

    great benefits, good work life balance, nice offices, great location

    Cons

    lots of office politics, difficult to get promotions due to structure of programs

    Advice to Management

    Minimize the office politics and undeserved promotions that result from it. Some senior management staffers are so under qualified for their positions it is scary.

    Pros

    Portfolio management and account management programs offer ideal platform to enter an MBA program post-PAAMCO. Learning and development are part of the company's core. Firm is filled with incredibly talented individuals and has a very flat structure.

    Cons

    Account management analysts have to work long hours during busy times (this is to be expected with client-deadline-driven projects).

    Pros

    I have no pro for this company. I'm surprised it has survived this long with all the SEC investigations

    Cons

    PAAMCO has been through lawsuits and criticism which they try to bury. There's high turnover. A lot of politics. At times, it felt like being in high school. I really don't think they do good work. Client facing employees are good at exaggeration. I think this company is overvalued. You have to pay PAAMCO and the underlying hedge funds. Double the fees. But does it really add value? I don't think so. technically companies can avoid the double fee by starting their own. It's like hiring a personal trainer when you can save the money and do your own research.
