Pros

Excellent exposure to multiple asset classes. You get to work with extremely intelligent and knowledgeable people. Reasonable hours and a good work/life balance. Good benefits and vacation, and management is very reasonable about letting people take vacation. They also try to make sure to stay informed about employee morale.

Cons

Lack of ability to be promoted beyond a certain level without a masters degree. Very low pay relative to the rest of the finance industry. The work can be very cyclical, so there are times when there is very little to do and other times when there is way too much to do.

Advice to Management

None
