I worked at Payden & Rygel
Pros – Employees are given challenging responsibilities and assignments early on if management feels comfortable with the individual. Entrepreneurial risk taking culture. Very effective client service focus.
Cons – Constantly shifting politics. Management rotates employees in and out of favor. Frequent firings result. Lean organization focused on maximizing the amount of productivity they can derive from each employee.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep up the entrepreneurial spirit while providing more consistent management and treat employees more objectively.

I worked at Payden & Rygel full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Not terribly high pressure; beautiful offices, free lunch twice a week.
Cons – The firm is very good at marketing. But not much out of the box thinking. Thus, investment results are average.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to suggestions from all; and not only listen to yes people.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
