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

Pros

It was a very comfortable environment. In every department that I worked in, there were no absurd hours or people yelling at you. It was pretty relaxed and had an old school business atmosphere

Cons

It didn't really feel as though the company was pushing into new territory or expanding, but rather trotting along and sticking to old clients and old methods. It was a very "punch-the-clock" type environment and took a lot of effort to generate interest in improving existing systems and processes.

Advice to Management

Distance yourself from bureaucracy.

    Pros

    The company is well known and respected for its products. They pay well and the people there are smart and good at what they do. Many of the employees are really nice and collaborative.

    Cons

    The culture is demanding, with new requests or changes in direction often at the last minute. This causes a lot of stress and friction between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Use your smarts to coach people. You'll get more out of them, not less.
