AWARDS

Sendero has won awards for growth, quality, and being a great place to work year after year, but the recognition that means the most to us doesn’t come with a trophy or plaque.

The most rewarding indication of our success comes in two forms: positive feedback from and high retention of employees, and extended or expanded business from our clients. These are the best endorsements we could ask for, and we strive to earn them every day.

    I have been working at Sendero full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're looking for a place to work where people genuinely care about their coworkers, look no further. The work that we do here is challenging, but incredibly rewarding and done with a greater purpose. The employees here are intelligent, compassionate, and just good all-around people. I can confidently say I've never woken up on a work day and dreaded going into work, which is sadly rare in today's working world. I began my career at Sendero and optimistically look forward to continuing it here for the foreseeable future.

    Cons

    Sendero continues to scale rapidly (~30% growth/year), which is associated with growing pains. Many of our processes have evolved significantly over the past years that I've been here, which sometimes can produce a degree of angst in the firm. I believe that the leadership team is doing a good job navigating these changes and am positive about the outlook of the company

    Advice to Management

    As processes evolve and our firm encounters change, continue to demonstrate your buy-in for the strategic plan. You have an incredible amount of influence across the firm, and your attitude dictates the optimism of your people.
