    Pros

    very good work life balance. very nice people. can learn a lot, but it depends on whether you are working for a good analyst.

    Cons

    under paid versus other RAs in Boston. coverage and exposure is limited unless you work for an analyst that delegates well. No set career path. The RA program isn't finite. There are RAs that have been here for 1 year, or 7 years...no set amount of time until you get promoted or "encouraged" to go to be school.

    Advice to Management

    Improve career progression and delegate responsibility in equity department.

    I worked at Eaton Vance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The corporate culture is wonderful. They treat their employees fairly, offer generous benefits, a very attractive work environment, and good team values. Good work/life balance with 9-5 hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company can be slow to implement change.

    Advice to Management

    Step up to the plate and add to staff as needed. The company is very slow to grow its ranks, as it doesn't ever want to have to cut back on staff.

    I have been working at Eaton Vance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture is second to none. No matter what level you are your opinion matters and there are no egos wth upper management. Plenty of exposure to all parts of the company. Your experience at EV is what you make of it!

    Cons

    If there is some aspect of the company to complain about then I haven't come across it yet. Hopefully I never will.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the current culture and provide any guidance / career advice to younger employees. Encourage everyone to take advantage of aspects of EV that are not offered other places and to get involved with various company events, charities, etc as it is a FANTASTIC way to network here.

    Pros

    They really care about their employees-- retention is a major concern for them. Managers are held accountable when talent is lost. Great work life balance, top notch benefits, incredible office and parties.

    Only a minor con: Business dress is required, business casual on Fridays.
