    I worked at PineBridge Investments full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful and motivated Leadership and investment team. The all hands on deck approach is one that really appealed to me about my time at PineBridge. Entrepreneurial spirit of the company is very rewarding

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance suffers, a lot of work and not enough hours, If not managed properly could burn out even the best employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider employee morale, and not just with engagement initiatives. The Work/Life balance is a serious issue, and you want to make sure you don't lose key people to it.

    I have been working at PineBridge Investments as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great experience and very nice people. They go out of their way to throw events for the company, and everyone seems to get along very well.

    Cons

    No real cons specific to PineBridge, but as with any internship experience, don't expect to be completely in love with what you do. There is a lot of legwork that has to be done, usually by those lower down.

    I worked at PineBridge Investments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally the employees were down to earth and approachable. The benefits were ok, but could be better. Cost cutting has had an adverse effect.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership was always a constant challenge. The slave driving nature of the business at PineBridge created a very negative atmosphere. People sees me to be always looking for a way out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees. Management needs to reassess themselves and their weaknesses.

    Pros

    I have been with this company for 9 years and every year has been more rewarding than the last. I have had a wonderful team of professionals guide me and encourage me in my personal and professional development. The culture around the organization has changed for the positive and I would say the change has been driven by a management that really listens to and cares about their employees. There are really exciting opportunities to be had as a PineBridge employee.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to do and there is never any downtime. But it is great to be part of a team that is working tirelessly towards growing PineBridge Investments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
