    "Good at what it does but not a fit in my case"

    I worked at Carlson Capital full-time

    Pros

    - Nice benefits (food and health benefits provided)
    - better culture than many comparable firms (not always warm, but much more collegial than many places in the industry)
    - good work resources (any research and tools you could care to name)
    - I admire the founder
    - Better work-life balance than many places in the industry

    Cons

    - Short-term focused, it's part of the business model (which the firm as a whole does well) but this either works well for you or it doesn't. There are plenty of worse places for this, though.
    - Focus on batting average as opposed to slugging can be frustrating - but again, that's the model
    - Experience very much dictated by your PM - if you don't get along or don't see eye-to-eye you won't last long
    - Compensation highly variable but there are certainly places that pay better
    - Mid-level decision makers seem to struggle with dual role
    - Limited interest in improving your skills

    Advice to Management

    I think you have a very sensible model, it is just not for everyone.
