I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Some people there are actually very smart. You're very lucky if you actually get to work with them.

Cons

Lackluster, ordinary firm, too much hype not enough substance, employee burnout, mediocre benefits and salary, bonuses aren't competitive, limited training and advancement opportunities.

Advice to Management

You'd benefit from updating your technical skills and listen to some of the smart people working for you.

    "Cerberus bought out AT&T Advertising Solutions recently. I have to say so far both companies have been enjoyable."

    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good salary, ok bonus programs. Good recognition of top notch sales people with trips for rewards. Benefits were great with AT&T, not sure how they will change with Cerberus. Three weeks off each year (personal/vacation) and good tuition reimbursement programs.

    Cons

    No benefits for retired employees, no 401K available as of right now, and only 4-5 pd holidays each year. Bonus changed recently from being obtainable to being very difficult to obtain. It is still doable, just expecting more work for less money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bonuses feasible so employees have an obtainable goal. Otherwise, looking forward to even more progress.

    Pros

    - some of the smartest people I worked with/for/around
    - great access to knowledge from experts in different fields (management bench)
    - great information sharing within the company
    - great brand recognition (for future employers) ... well-respected within the industry

    Cons

    - pretty stark work environment (none of the glitz or fancy artwork, etc. found at other shops)
    - people tend to look out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    Allow for 360 degree reviews of all immediate colleagues
