    "Not what it used to be...but still has its pluses"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Investment Research Analyst in New York, NY
      Doesn't Recommend
      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at AllianceBernstein full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      People are generally nice, ethical, and smart. Work life balance is pretty good. Company is doing better than a couple years ago but worse than 10 years ago.

      Cons

      Under pressure from a shrinking industry due to the rapid growth of passive index funds. Means same or fewer people asked to do more things, which means more stress and less deep analysis for investment research jobs.

      Advice to Management

      Don't forget the research-driven heritage and culture. Don't become just another stock-picking culture focused more on product proliferation, etc.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at AllianceBernstein full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Remote work capabilities, friendly staff

      Cons

      Management promotions is all political. Often you have managers in areas with zero background. Pay is below par. Everything is hidden behind closed doors.

      Advice to Management

      Pay the top people if you want to succeed. Have a plan. This asset management firm is one of the few where there is no growth.
