I worked at NEPC full-time
Good work/life balance, generally pleasant people to work with, relaxed culture, strong visibility in the industry
More sales focused than investment focused, thinks like a service-oriented business rather than performance-oriented investment firm, mixed bag of professionals (some highly intelligent but many lacking depth and actual investment knowledge), many older partners do not invest back into firm
Advice to Management
Invest in the firm and retain talent, research and actual investment acumen should be at the heart of the business, if performance is good, no one cares about "client service"
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NEPC (Boston, MA) in November 2016.
1 round of phone interview following by 2 in-person rounds. Pretty quickly moving process took literally only 2 weeks to complete it. Really friendly Interviewers who make me feel open up and speak batter about my prior experience which also give them opportunity to testify me for their job requirement.
