    Pros

    Great compensation package, work life balance is great.

    Cons

    So much process that no one actually knows what the process really is. Projects get started, delayed, and then dropped constantly. You never feel like you're actually accomplishing anything. Easily 5-8 years behind the times from a technology perspective. "People Managers" don't actually know how to manage. I don't know a single good example of a manager here. They all look out for themselves. Decisions are made regarding employees without discussion with that employee.

    Advice to Management

    You need a complete overhaul of your NAD leadership team and IT organization. I know so many unhappy people here. People come here just to coast into retirement.

    I have been working at Capital Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Private company so they're not subject to the vagaries of a publicly traded company; plenty of opportunities to shine or "stretch", i.e. take initiative to get something done and be recognized for it; plenty of chances to put in overtime and bump your annual income by +20%; annual bonuses are fantastic and can increase your annual salary by another 20%. Learning opportunities are also offered - mostly online - so you can learn new skills. Bottom line: if you have the drive and take the initiative, you can do very well for yourself and your family working for CG. There is no shortage of available work! My managers have been some of the best I've had in my career; they are genuinely interested in improving your skill set. I enjoy my regular meetings with my manager to get his feedback on my projects and advice on how to proceed.

    Cons

    There are tons of meetings and progress on initiatives seems to take forever at times; big projects can change direction in a moment's notice because they weren't engineered with enough technical input; expensive technical purchases appear to be driven by emotions at times and not by sound purchasing strategies. You can expect to get a new buzzword introduced every 6 months or so to describe your workload, a team effort or a current project. Overtime can ravage your work/life balance - something management pays lip service to.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at which of your directors are spending the most money, how they're spending it and why.

    Pros

    Great environment, people and management. Wonderful company to work for. Position gives a great understanding of the financial investment landscape for personal investors and advisors.

    Cons

    Position is part of an extremely large department which makes it difficult to move into other positions as there are a substantial number of competing candidates. Answering phone calls all day, everyday, can wear you down.

    I worked at Capital Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are awesome, they basically are paying for your retirement without any personal contribution. The environment is great also, top notch equipment and the building and location is gorgeous. Management is approachable and I always enjoyed going to work.
    The PTO and sick time is very generous.
    The two annual bonuses are really nice

    Cons

    some processes are very lengthy and need to be improved, but they are working on these things. ex. they just implemented rightfax instead of literally getting up from your desk to print and the fax a document, huge waste of paper.

    Advice to Management

    just keep doing what you do. your people are very happy
