Lean Entrepreneurial Culture

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Payden & Rygel

ProsEmployees are given challenging responsibilities and assignments early on if management feels comfortable with the individual. Entrepreneurial risk taking culture. Very effective client service focus.

ConsConstantly 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 ManagementKeep up the entrepreneurial spirit while providing more consistent management and treat employees more objectively.

You have to be with the right team!

Research Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at Payden & Rygel full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNot terribly high pressure; beautiful offices, free lunch twice a week.

ConsThe firm is very good at marketing. But not much out of the box thinking. Thus, investment results are average.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen 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
