I have been working at Guggenheim Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Management is making some improvements, trying to make it better, adding a gym, trying to grow the place out. Most people are friendly. Brand new office location, convenient to grand central. Full kitchen with free drinks and coffee all day. Occasional free gourmet food.

Cons

Under compensated or market rate at best, morale pretty bad, its seems only the profit generating employees get treated ok, if your not a salesman, trader or banker then you pretty much don't exist in the eyes of management. Not a lot of opportunity to advance if you are support type staff (admin, ops, risk, IT, etc.). Just consider yourself a "nobody".

Many managers have been there too long and probably need to move on. They have a hard time retaining employees. You get the sense that a lot of people took a job there because they had no where else to go. It doesn't seem like its a "first choice" place for anyone.

Advice to Management

Try to be friendly with ALL employees, not just your "money makers". Spend some time actually getting to know what your employees are frustrated about. The constant revolving door is not helping the firms image. Hire the right people for the right reasons in the first place and maybe there will be less of an exodus.
