    I worked at AllianceBernstein full-time

    Pros

    Decent people to work with and not as aggressive or toxic as some other financial firms.

    Cons

    Management is pretty bad and all about cost cutting. CEO is a joke and the firm seems years behind peers in terms of operations, strategy, performance, human capital, etc...

    Before the recession, it was a great place...but then the CEO got replaced and the new one is a complete joke with no sense about how to effectively manage people

    I worked at AllianceBernstein full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to the best market research and analysts you could ask for. Bernstein does an amazing job of hiring excellent people, who generally are both intelligent and personable, making the workplace enjoyable.

    Cons

    Extremely limited career growth opportunitiy - they tell you the growth path is there, but once you work your ass off for years, you realize that it likely won't happen to you.

    Advice to Management

    Extremely hierarchical - upper management can be very difficult to pin down unless you are dealing with a client/situation they deem "worthy". Be straightforward with your employees about growth opportunities and tell them what is and is not available to them. Kraus (new CEO) has done a great job trying to turn the company around and keep talent employed, but needs more work.
