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

    Pros

    -Amazing insurance benefits
    -Pantry stocked with breakfast items and refreshments, all free
    -Parking garage access
    -Free breakfast on the first Friday of each month (tacos, bagels, etc...)
    -Most federal holidays are recognized, since the market is closed on those days
    -2 weeks of additional leave every 5 years

    Cons

    -Very little forward thinking (hard to explain without writing a novel)
    -Low pay for current job market
    -Focus on dog-and-pony, not results
    -Advancement for favorites, not productivity
    -Numbers are constantly fudged to show results desired by the Board
    -Overly micro-managed, spent one-third of my day not working on the job but showing the work I did for the other two-thirds2/3

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to embrace and advance your hardest workers and forward thinkers, not just the "Yes" people. To much time spent on the dog-and-pony show and not enough focus on results, which shows in the market.
