    Good Place to Learn the Basics

    Portfolio Management Assistant (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGood people to work with and good benefiets. Pretty relaxed learning enviornment, and if you stick it out to become a portfolio manager then you will have a great job with great benefiets.

    ConsLearning tops out pretty fast, and before you get put into a position where you can grow you have to slog it out doing really mundane work for a long period of time.

    Good Company and People

    Private Bank (Current Employee)

    ProsPlenty to offer your clients and to feel good about offering. Some very intelligent people to work with and network with. Plenty of people to help you to learn about your subject matter interest. It's a large organization.
