    I worked at Prime, Buchholz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    overall a great place to start if you want to gain insight into a the investment industry and maintain a good work life balance. They provide great benefits and a nice work environment. Decent opportunity to leverage into ops at a fund or other bigger investment consulting firm.

    Cons

    lower salaries than the rest of the industry perhaps due to location. Not much potential for upward mobility from the PA role and day to day work is tedious at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more consistent mentoring to jr staff and provide better promotional track.

    - Compensation is not competitive.

    - Communication from upper management is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent will continue to leave if employee needs are not taken seriously. A thank you is a nice thing to say every so often.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement and success within firm if you have the right attitude and work ethic. Firm values its employees as shown by financial incentives paid to employees when other firms did not pay bonuses, cut salaries and laid-off staff.

    Cons

    Departments and teams have made great progress working cooperatively with one another but think the firm would continue to benefit if more employees took a holistic view.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue hiring talent in all departments of the firm to increase the level of professionalism and success of the firm.
