    I have been working at Lord Abbett & Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Sales and Investment professionals are world-class. The private partnership allows them to be generous with benefits and vacation.

    Cons

    No real cons, obviously having bigger funds would help get more management access and hedge funds pay more, but these are relative cons not absolute cons.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency would always improve morale.
