    I worked at PCG Asset Management

    Pros

    Great culture, awesome employees, strong corporate backing. GREAT view of the ocean. A ton of quality snack foods in the kitchen.

    Cons

    Little / slow professional growth prospects. Very old computers that are still running Windows XP and Pentium processors. Sometimes the ocean blinds my eyes.

    Advice to Management

    Please buy new computers for the employees. Old equipment in today's age plays a HUGE part on productivity. Also, reward employees based on work product, not social likability.

    Pros

    * wonderful coworkers
    * beautiful office
    * good way to learn about the private equity market

    Cons

    * terrible management
    * no transparency (used to read about firm departures in the press before anyone at the company addressed it)
    * grossly underpays talent and overpays those at the top just to avoid turnover no matter how people at top are performing - it is the opposite of a meritocracy
    * unpleasant atmosphere (no one seems happy)

    Advice to Management

    management needs to care more about employees and treat all with respect.
