    Pros

    Bright, engaged colleagues who care about the success of projects and assignments. Flexibility to stretch an investment role as your expertise grows. Fantastic health and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Advancement is slow - particularly for those in the early part of their careers (<10 years). While you may be successfully covering work above your pay grade, it will take extra time (1-2 years minimum) for your title and salary to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to retain talented and motivated younger employees. Those of us who left, eventually did so for financial reasons.

    Pros

    The company is geared toward supporting the investment professionals produce good results for the clients. Which is what they're supposed to do.

    Cons

    The investors inhabit a meritocracy since their results can be minutely measured. The non-investors live in the usual corporate political environment, though almost everyone is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the departmental fiefdoms.

    Pros

    Benefits Salary Very intelligent work force Firm reputation

    Cons

    Communication from division management lacking, creating unclear team direction Groups constantly passing the buck; lack of accountability & ownership Work life balance Entitlement rampant in culture Fire drill culture

    Advice to Management

    Lack of established protocol is a concern; we will figure it out when it happens "because we're wellington" is not a smart way to operate- you can only put out so many fires before you get burnt. And were open to much risk. Unfocused teams result from lack of proper practical management. This is a big firm, let's start acting like it.
