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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boston Private as an intern

    Pros

    Learned a lot! The project management team was very friendly and everyone was always willing to teach. You truly learn how to manage projects in a very methodological manner and grow in a professional environment.

    Cons

    At times the routine felt a little mundane, and a lot of the project were heavily IT based (which I had very little knowledge of). The learning curve is a bit high, but definitely manageable.
