    I worked at Guggenheim Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the time, it was called Claymore Securities and it had a SME feel it. Generally, everyone knew each other's names and, to some degree, what was going on in their personal lives. Generally, the crowd is younger.

    You get paid a lot of money to do very little work.

    Cons

    -Incredibly high degrees of nepotism. Only those in the inner circle were promoted. Very seldom was it based on true talent.

    - Management's blind positivity inhibited them from effectively receiving feedback.

    - The culture is broken: there is mixed messaging regarding touting yourself as an SME and then firing people without a notice or reason.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself: how am I contributing to the problem?

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    manager is very supportive of work/life balance, lots of room for growth, a good place to work overall.

    Cons

    wish there was more knowledge sharing and communication between the many different groups, need to build standardization and follow industry best practices.

    Advice to Management

    find out the hidden talent thats in your file and rank and use them to your fullest advantage.
