          I have been working at AllianceBernstein full-time for more than 4 years

          Pros

          work life balance, ability to work from home some days (not every dept has this flexibility), offers lots of different onsite training, very diverse (in certain depts)

          Cons

          not much career growth and lots of politics

          Advice to Management

          management should focus on the molding their delegates and allow them to take the lead on things so they can advance their skill set and move up the corporate ladder.

          I worked at AllianceBernstein full-time for more than 4 years

          Pros

          Smaller company with decent technology.

          Cons

          Revolving door job. Most associates last only a couple years because of how hard they work you for little pay and no incentive cut-in from advisor production.

          Advice to Management

          Pay people better and they will stay. Otherwise keep paying a ton of money to train new people only for them to leave a year or 2 later.

          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.
