    Pros

    Good support system and work/life balance. Seasoned teams that are willing to help with your personal growth and are approachable.

    Cons

    Pay is not always competitive with the market for many. Benefits structure has gradually placed more costs on the employee through the years.

    I worked at AllianceBernstein full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The hours are decent and the on-site cafeteria is a perk.

    Cons

    Despite an emphasis on employee feedback and 360 Reviews, upper management pays absolutely no attention to the results. Senior Vice Presidents are essentially in tenured roles and get away with anything. Impossible to move up the chain unless you come from the outside or are tight with former failed Lehman execs now at AB. Since moving to a peer in the industry, it's clear AB places no emphasis on rewarding performance....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all of your employees - not just the chosen few (i.e. "Chief Diversity Officer", failed sell-side bankers, etc...). Do not making it as apparent that you do not care about employees. For example, public filings showing the CEO's driver makes more than majority of employees and CEO's excessive personal aircraft usage.

    I worked at AllianceBernstein for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The firm was a proud and caring firm for those of us who were sincere hard working employees. That changed when Kraus became CEO.

    Cons

    Top tier of management still makes top comp even though performance is some of the worst in the industry, while everyone else works more hours with no additional comp. The family aspect is completely gone.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure each person - no matter what level is equally accountable and equally rewarded.

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

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work. Everyone was part of the team and was recognized and compensated when they deserved to be. I cannot think of any current "Pros", since culture has completely changed since new CEO has taken over.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Decisions are made based on personal relationships, not value of the employee. Titles are given, but comp doesn't change.

    Advice to Management

    AXA needs to change CEO.
