    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 for less than a year

    Pros

    I was a summer intern in 2019 and I was working in the Investment Analytics and Data team. The company has good company culture and the environment is amazing to work at, the team managers have a very pragmatic approach to problem solving and their merits is justified from their work and work ethics. The team consists of some really experienced and amazing people and the work is cutting edge from research as well... as development point of view. The overall internship experience was really amazing and it is definitely something I may brag about on my portfolio!
