    I have been working at Acadian Asset Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Culture is phenomenal! Everyone is engaged, smart, motivated, and willing to help. Acadian does well in encouraging staff to continue learning and developing either through certifications and/or higher education. Decision-making is pragmatic, promotions meritocratic (relatively little in the way of petty politics).

    Cons

    Junior positions on the Investment Team are relatively few so it can be challenging to grow

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Acadian Asset Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Get paid. Lots of people who think they know what's going on but don't. No accountability. Can be subpar and make it big time. Love to play with new technology have no idea how it works get scared and run back to old principles everyone is the smartest person in the room !

    Cons

    Will find someone to pin it on so be careful Only people who stay can't find work other places so lots of old relics.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it golden , pay that money

    I have been working at Acadian Asset Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Best things, cool tech, fast pace, money for projects is not a problem if justified. Great perks like a $100 new customer bonus for everyone. Everyone is an expert in their role, very smart pool of coworkers.

    Cons

    Work life balance is out of whack. If you show management that you can work faster, or put in extra hours to finish a project. They start to expect that for everything, even the little things.

    Advice to Management

    Some times the left hand does not talk to the right hand.
