I worked at Acadian Asset Management full-time

Pros

Money flies around this place. From the free lunches to the Acadian logo-ed swag.

Cons

The management system and performance review system encourages a 'me-first' attitude where people are unwilling to help or share experience. Money is king and almost all incentive is personal and monetary which leads to employees working extra hard to avoid blame while not so hard on teamwork or leading (in terms of management).

Advice to Management

Figure out a way to monetize a positive culture instead of the "race to the top of the title chain" in place now. You might have happier employees instead of just money hungry ones.

    I worked at Acadian Asset Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sink or swim environment allows you to maneuver your job to take on ad hoc opportunities at will.

    Cons

    Bizarre management structure leads to no one wanting to take on to much responsibility (i.e, liability) or to effect the change needed there.

    Advice to Management

    Put some structure and oversight into place.
