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

    Pros

    -The company is growing fast
    -Opportunities to work on interesting projects
    -Free drinks in the office

    Cons

    -No visibility in the company's plans, performance or structure
    -Very poor management that has literally told employees that their development doesn't matter
    -In 3+ years working there, never saw the CEO or heard him speak
    -No work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Many employees are still there because they can't find a way to leave. Build a culture that employees want to be part of and take care of them.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Guggenheim Partners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, good salesforce, reasonably good trading desk. Nice offices, part of a bigger and growing brand name. Has the prestige of a large regional broker/dealer. All of this applies to the mortgage fixed-income and structured products groups. It doesn't apply to investment banking or equities, which are the dead weight of the organization.

    Cons

    Senior management is dishonest and shady about compensation, your division's earnings may be used to subsidize other money-losing divisions, compensation becoming increasingly stock-based (the company is private, so good luck monetizing that stock). The equities and investment banking divisions are money pits.

    Advice to Management

    The idea that you can skim off the hard work of others will soon be an obsolete one. Enjoy it while it lasts.
