    Pros

    Downtown with great technology and products and services to offer advisors. Promotional opportunies are open to qualifying applicants with opportunites for advancement.

    Cons

    The sales staff is more career orientated on the internal desk and content in their current roll. This does not spur the competitive drive on the desk.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent in what is going on for the direction of the company. Change in leaderhsip should be met with openness.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The great people around the firm
    Good benefits - many of which have been cut however

    Cons

    Madison Dearborn took Nuveen private at the top of the market - as a result, the firm is under extreme pressure to generate revenues and/or cut costs. There are many entrepreneurial people in the firm, unfortunately, executive management is detached from the people who are expected to deliver and doesn't do a good job of monitoring or holding to account those who are responsible for the undertaking. In a business with extremely large gross margins, this type of detachment isn't terminal nor does it result in major pain for shareholders, however, in the new asset management business paradigm it has become a problem for Nuveen and firms like it.

    Advice to Management

    Run Nuveen like a business, not a country club for execs.
