      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at AllianceBernstein

      Pros

      Lots of resources internally to help. Professional image.

      Cons

      Extremely political. Merit is not rewarded; it's all about political alignment and fiefdoms.

      Advice to Management

      Even the playing field for new recruits and allow the cream to rise to the top.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at AllianceBernstein

      Pros

      Great name recognition, disciplined, excellent training. First class in everything they do in front of clients. Ethical and buttoned up.

      Cons

      Weak Managing Directors in the private client group. They take medicore producers and move them into management with little apparent training or planning. Culture very political and while excellence is rewarded well, a lot of it success is political. Can be petty atmosphere.

      Advice to Management

      Make your Managing Directors accountable. Ones that are extremely unpopular and are only around due to their legacy are depleting morale and will cause you to lose more advisors in the near term.
