    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 worked at PineBridge Investments

    Pros

    -Compensation is competitive
    -Nice office space

    Cons

    I am an ex-employee, but I am trying to be objective. In a little over a years time at Pinebridge the company laid off almost 30% of its employees. You can reduce employees and expenses as much as you want but if you don't increase sales you will not be profitable.
    -No clear communication form either senior or middle management.
    -Work/Life balance is horrible.
    -Backstabbing culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a clear direction for the company.

    I have been working at PineBridge Investments

    Pros

    You will get a fancy officer title to enhance your resume, even if your job function doesn't carry an officer title elsewhere. Excellent starting salary.

    Cons

    Company is tanking. To keep people, officer titles are handed out like candy. Managers are not open and enjoy keeping secrets from the staff. Many people are not qualified for their roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give it up already and be truthful about current state of affairs as well as 5 year plan, if there even is one. Stop posting fake 5 star reviews on here. There is always one right after a bad review gets posted.

    I have been working at PineBridge Investments (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay varies could be higher for the long hours of work. People are nice and professional.

    Cons

    Their hours are 9-5 but it's really working through your lunch and after hours. Since its a global company you also work on your vacation, sick and personal days via your BlackBerry, Ipad or computer. The workload is very demanding and time sensitive. Hardly time for breaks or lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a work sharing program and some family work balance program.

    I have been working at PineBridge Investments as an intern (less than a 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.

    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.
