Pros

Located in a great area in Orange County. I made some of my best friends working there. There is opportunity to work in global offices but it can be political. Benefits are great and if people like you they are willing to help.

Cons

The running theme is that teams are run too thin, company is very lean and doesnt pay well, at all. Very difficult to advance even when well liked becuase you don't learn very much outside of the scope of your role, sometimes even if you ask. Frequently, employees quit and get training elsewhere and then comeback or go to MBA school and then come back.

Advice to Management

Organizational structure is not set up well and it would be wise to restructure roles to give younger employees more opportunity for internal growth.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Generally very sharp people in investment teams, comp is very good, much better location than NYC

    Cons

    Non investment professional management is very poor, esp. In IT group. Culture has deteriorated as company has grown over last 5 years becoming bloated, very political, and cut throat (although there are small pockets of the old PIMCO). Face time and appearances are often more critical than results

    Advice to Management

    Need better managers not just bright people to balance the use of carrot and stick
