I worked at Advisory Research full-time
This is a laid back asset management firm. Benefits are standard i.e. 401k, health, dental, vision. Christmas party each year, and performance bonus (not much).
Poor communication and feedback from management. There is zero culture in this company. If you are NOT a CFA portfolio manager than there is very little room to grow.
Advice to Management
Find ways to keep employees motivated. Have better communication with your employees.
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Advisory Research (Chicago, IL) in March 2010.
Initial phone interview, then a series of 1-1 interview with various members of the team. First two interviews were with analysts/PMs. Fairly standard, questions were tough, but fair. Final interview was with CIO of firm. Much different style than the first two interviews: Less focused on knowledge/skills/ability to do job. Overall rating of interview process is based on the final interview.
