    Pros

    Calm, professional work environment. Great benefits. Strong investment team. Significant emphasis on the well being of each employee. Modern and comfortable campus work environments.

    Cons

    Very limited visibility to financial information since CG is a private company. In the absence of outside scrutiny, there were many inefficiencies. Network of long-time employees was often in a group-think mindset, which seemed to limit the company from being even better than it was. The investment professionals were great and the best in their field. However, employees in other departments were no better or worse than their peers at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Follow Steven Covey's advice: seek first to understand, then to be understood. Try and let in some new ideas and to do things with a greater sense of urgency.

    Pros

    Good pay and retirement benefit. Willing to provide employee training when required by work. People are in general friendly. Many long time employees which is big plus for this industry.

    Cons

    Promotion doesn't come along with good performance. Some manager value relationship more than hard work. No clear career path for people in technical fields. If you do want to be in management position, you stay at bottom forever.

    Advice to Management

    Change brings uncertainty. Keep people informed and bring people in the change process. Better use the resources available here. Managerment who do not recognize people's skill, talents, and promote accordingly are wasting company's big assets.
