    "Decent place to make a stop in your career"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Senior Portfolio Manager in Boston, MA
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Arrowstreet Capital full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Typically market rate compensation.

    Cons

    Lack of stability of many key team members or those who have been strong producers. Many partners have become spoiled and unmotivated...content with just "riding the ride." Turnover fairly high in Legal, Business Development, Operations etc. especially among strong performers.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a program to train managers as opposed to just typically promoting from within and hoping for the best. Many of the managers have not been cast correctly in their roles leading to fairly high turnover on teams.

    I have been working at Arrowstreet Capital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The flat corporate structure provides access to some world renowned industry professionals and leads to a group-focused approach. The work/life balance is decent, especially for the financial industry. Senior folks have been very receptive to new ideas.

    Cons

    Some room to improve technical systems that have been outpaced by firm growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue introducing opportunities for continued learning.

    I have been working at Arrowstreet Capital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good 20 days PTO, 5 days SPTO

    Cons

    You end up taking on extra work without the pay while management takes a long time to hire someone. Even after the position gets filled there is not a good work/life balance since the additional workload will be the new norm for you.
