    Pros

    Excellent benefits package and fair compensation. There is a high degree of regard for each employees' well being. If when layoffs were conducted everyone was treated more than fairly. The firm has really taken a hit from the financial crisis so any downsides are related to unavoidable circumstances.

    Cons

    Poor communication from management. Isolation of various functional groups. HR has done away with the performance management system so it is difficult to know how well you are performing. Some groups are plagued by underperformers who are kept around solely because of tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees to receive more feedback on opportunities to operate business.


  2. "Great work environment and coworkers."

    Pros

    The people are friendly and the culture is strong. The managers are always flexible with vacation and allowing you to work out of the office. There are also many unofficial perks such as happy hour and lunch for the office once a week. American Capital also provides various options of work within their company. They have a CDO group Second Lien group and a Leveraged buyouts group.

    Cons

    The pay is slightly below market, and bonuses and promotions tend to be political, but as long as you get along with the directors at the office they will take care of you.

    Advice to Management

    To use a little more discretion when promoting people.
