    I have been working at PineBridge Investments as an intern for 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.

    I worked at PineBridge Investments full-time for 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.

    I have been working at PineBridge Investments full-time for more than 8 years

    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.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, visible/approachable senior management team, great people, opportunities for growth and development, hard work does not go unnoticed and collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    - Internal politics slow down the decision making process
    - Some of senior management's direct reports are not timely in communicating important information/changes with their teams
    - Certain teams do not consider project deadlines and consistently deliver content at the 11th hour (there are no enforced consequences for missing deadlines)

    Pros

    I truly enjoy coming to work every day and interacting with some of the best and brightest in the business. Although we work hard, we have fun along the way. It's unique to be in an environment where employees are recognized for their contributions and senior management listens to employees at all levels about how to make this the best place to work.

    Cons

    Lots of work to do, but it keeps it challenging!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue promoting open communication throughout the firm.
