    I worked at Babson Capital Management full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good amount of vacation time.

    Cons

    Be careful where you go. The Senior Manager at the Operations/Business Support department is the worst I have ever seen within the company and comparing to the same level at other similar companies. No leadership, no respect for employees. Blaming is very common when things go wrong. No attributions to employees if their ideas are adopted. The senior manager will do whatever he can, even go against the company... policy to cut down the cost. No considerations for employees' interest and career advancement. Too much politics here.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who has leadership skills, virtues of a leader, not just someone who knows how to get the job done. Hiring the right people as senior managers is especially important, as these are the key people building the culture of the company.

    I worked at Babson Capital Management for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Firm is a top institutional investment shop with over 25 billion in fixed income portfolios being managed, and regular subscriptions from MassMutual's GIA

    Cons

    Location is not ideal for workers leaving jobs in places like NEw York City or Boston. If you end up being forced out for some reason, good luck finding equivalent employment in the region
