    I have been working at SEI as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Consultants are treated almost as well as employees and have use of some employee perks.

    Cons

    Documentation for projects not well done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could take more interest in what is really going on and help out a lot more. As with all large companies, some teams are great and some are not so good. Different management styes. Management training would be helpful.

    I have been working at SEI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexibility, can usually come and go whenever, mostly nice people

    Cons

    No direction. Manual processes everywhere and it is surprising anything gets done, low workload so easy to get bored, lack of communication from management and sometimes even lack of management skills for the directors and other leaders. No idea of career progression, what salaries are, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to communicate, provide some training, provide career paths or at least let people know if a job is a promotion or a decrease

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people. Very open, comfortable atmosphere. Not too much stress.

    Cons

    Job can be repetitive and boring at times, and opportunities for advancement are based on luck - pretty much if you join the right team at the right time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There could be more resources here to help employees find opportunities for growth within SEI.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Love the open floor set up with no cubicles

    Former Employee - Pre-Associate Intern in Oaks, PA

    I worked at SEI

    Pros

    Open environment, respectful people, people willing to go out of their way to help new people, interesting art on the walls, good structured program

    Cons

    Not much exposure to other areas of the firm, no choice in where placed, the potential of being placed in a division which will not allow for much learning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for applicants to apply for specific positions, not the program in general. Allow for more flexibility to experiences other areas
