I worked at FS Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good growth company, Original location was great but new head office is not central to public transportation. Steady Job growth and the Pay is higher than many in the industry and location.

Cons

Senior Management not very competent. Company has grown drastically in the past decade but senior leadership is very young and not experienced. They hand out titles easily, the only company I know where you have a guy under 30 with no Masters Degree and an undergrad from a state school that can make it to Executive Director. They promote if you are unhappy so if you're looking for the name and title then this will probably work for you. A Director level here is barely a manager in other companies. Diluted titles which will you in other organizations.

Advice to Management

You don't really nurture talented employees. Seems like the more you complain, the bigger jerk you are then you get promoted if you threaten to leave the company while hard working, talented, but maybe less outspoken employees are overlooked. Management has a long way to go, the core individuals that started this company don't have any people management skills, strategy planning experience, nor can they nurture and develop their employees.

    Pros

    Young, smart, and motivated staff. Management gives you freedom and support to engage in new projects. Company also prioritizes employee health and satisfaction.

    Cons

    If you don't have much initiative, the day-to-day work can get quite monotonous and repetitive.
