Neutral Outlook

I worked at Boston Private as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

very helpful for other team members. everyone is very knowledgeable about their job and if they don't know an answer they will help you get it very professional friendly and outgoing people

Cons

need to have a company policy on certain job duties. since the merger of the company there are 3 different locations that have different peoplle handle ing the same job at differ location. we need each other on the procedures of job duties. each job detail is the same way.

Advice to Management

you work for a great company and are very lucky to work with the people you do. I've never felt so welcome at a tapas I meant like I did at boston private. the employees of this company are not just coworkers they treat each other with respect and compassion as if they were family

    Pros

    Extremely professional with immense growth opportunity. Employees are extremely knowledgeable and world class. Human Resources is great to work with.

    Cons

    Opperationally the company lacks conformity. There is a large breakdown of communication interdepartmentally and throughout the organization which causes client service to deminish as well as confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be consistant and follow through. To become more technologically savy to be able to "get their hands dirty"

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Boston Private full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Solid long term outlook. CEO has incredible vision. People are amazing and always go above and beyond. Huge investment in tech is underway. Clearly seem to be headed for an org shift as it becomes more apparent that certain functions need to consolidate to ensure consistency.

    Cons

    Senior management is incredibly stale. Most are late stage career and clearly wish it were 1985 again. Physical space in main office is dated (circa 1985...hmmm) and needs complete overhaul to foster more collaboration. Very little direction provided from top beyond overall strategy. Left to siloed business areas to implement process, which fractures the client experience. HR needs more of a leadership role in shaping culture, but has very little authority to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Break the silos and find a way to organize around client needs. Need single relationship manager for clients who is not compensated in a single business area. Run front office relationship management on a market level, but back office should all be run centrally. Need a CRO who has authority over entire sales team. Too disjointed right now.
