    Pros

    Challenging work, provides opportunities for learning and allows people to create impact within the company. Management structure is flat and encourages interaction between different levels.

    Work/life balance is tilted heavily towards work. Management expects certain number of hours/week in NY office (similar to an investment management workplace). Compensation is muted due to nature of asset management business.

    Good company, bad work/life balance

    Sep 19, 2011 - Analyst in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Like to retain employees, very smart senior individuals, business is run very well. Information sharing is very high and individuals are given a large amount of responsibility at a junior level.

    Cons

    Does not promote a healthy work/life balance. Compensation is often lower than market rate given the amount of work and hours expected of the employee.

    Pros

    Free coffee, flexible timings, good amount of time for vacation.

    Cons

    I took the courage of being good and worked many after hours with the aim of getting a good year end bonus. In the mid year, I realized that my juniors were making higher salary than myself. Tried negotiating and when realized that nothing can be done now, I took extreme step of resigning immediately.
