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 online. I interviewed at NEPC (Boston, MA) in June 2017.
Lots of questions on previous marketing experience and knowledge of marketing tools/financial industry.
The interviewer was entirely unprofessional. Yawned 6 times LOUDLY over the phone, very uninterested, lots of pauses and not engaged in the conversation whatsoever.
The most unprofessional Senior HR generalist I've ever talked to.
