Pros

Interesting People to work with and/or work for. There are some very good manager and senior managers employed here. HQ is in a good location in NYC.

Cons

Pay is generally below the industry norm. There is a big breakdown in communication. You don't feel like you have a path/guidance for opportunities to grow.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to let your employees know what is going on within the company. Have a better new hire on-boarding process so new employees can learn the ins/outs of AB and learn what the company has to offer. Create an actual and valuable mentor program. Think more about the company then the needs of upper management all the time.

    Pros

    Generally, work expectations are very reasonable. For those who wish to move internally, there are better-than-average opportunities. The Bernstein private client group has a good reputation.

    Cons

    There are many who feel that AllianceBernstein has lost its touch. The investments have performed horribly and the ouster of CEO Lew Sanders have lowered the confidence investors have in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off senior people and replacing them with cheaper labor.

    Pros

    colleagues, I've met some really great people to keep in touch with as well as work with throughout my time there

    Cons

    tracking for moving up is pretty low and not guided well. people who have potential don't necessarily get the recognition they deserve even if they put themselves out there.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the employees, think outside of the box, take a less conservative and more progress approach to leading the group, and think of the bigger picture.
