I worked at Capital Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Great culture where all Associates are treated with respect.
-Highly competitive compensation package (bonuses, merit & MRP)
-Good work/life balance

Cons

-Highly bureaucratic organization structure
-Bureaucratic structure has led to limited or no upward mobility
-Key decisions are not made swiftly leading to inefficiency and "analysis paralysis"
-Within the Global Institutional Operations (GIO) team, poor portfolio performance led to layoffs and office consolidations
-Elimination of 9/80 work schedule in some business units

Advice to Management

CG is a tremendous company with a storied history and strong fair culture. However, the increasing bureaucracy, inefficiency and lack of upward mobility should be cause for management concern as it is adversely impacting employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what the bottom rung associates have to say. It shouldn't all be about "business needs".
