      I have been working at AllianceBernstein

      Pros

      AllianceBernstein is a respected and lead for investment research. Prior to the down turn in the market, they make a very respectful turnaround from the negative aspects of market timing,

      Cons

      Unfortunately now with Lean initiatives all of the ground work has been diminished by setting the expectations to unrealistic highs with the remaining staff responsible for achievement. Morale is on the down hill slide and the comfort of job security is all but eradicated by the downsizing actions. Senior management is not listening to their staff nor give any indication they care except to throw out some menial recogntion...

      Advice to Management

      Open the glass door and take a realistic approach to what is going out in your outlying SBUs. The direction of the company is unclear and it appears that old adage of continuing to "throw something at the wall, it will eventually stick." How many new funds and name changes....we can't even keep up with what our offerings are! The answer is not outsoucing to our India-what is the gain?. The quality is not there and...

      I have been working at AllianceBernstein

      Pros

      The people are friendly and easy to work with. Never had an issue taking vacation or working from home when the need arose. Base pay is fair.

      Cons

      There is no career path. I am under the impression that management would be happy if I stayed in the same role for the next 20 years. The bonus is not directly tied to performance.

      Advice to Management

      You need to recognize talent at the lower levels and develop formal career tracks for all employees. Senior managment needs to help communicate and implement the executives vision. I feel the weekness of the firm is our senior managment.
