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

Pros

Smart people, high intensity, good compensation (for some)

Cons

YOu are only as good as your last [whatever]. Consistent stellar performance doesn't matter if at the end of the year there is a mistake or error.

Advice to Management

Hire some managers! A PM does not a manager make!

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at PIMCO as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good reputation, good benefits. Some people were really nice. People in other positions seemed happy.

    Cons

    Job itself sucked. They are disorganized, they will promise things they don't delver on, they are super judgmental, and if you don't fit the submissive stereotype of an admin they'll let you go in two days without even putting you with your group. Churn and burn environment.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out and appreciate people's differences. Respect the people who work for you.

    I worked at PIMCO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You will have the opportunity to rub elbows with some of the smartest people in the industry. Definitely a place that is challenging and one where you will learn an enormous amount.

    Cons

    Horrible/incompetent management and zero visibility in terms of growth prospects. It is extremely difficult to move within the firm and roles have become extremely specialized and focused on specific tasks. Very fast paced with long hours and very little work/life balance and not so great compensation. Politics will take you places while playing a team sport will only work against you. A very high stress environment leading to constant nightmares. EVERYONE is replaceable. Management will over promise and rarely deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. Reward and recognize employees for their efforts. Create an environment where growth is encouraged instead of continuously asking for more and more and more while giving zero in return. DO NOT THROW PEOPLE UNDER THE BUS. Stop with the politics and reward individuals who truly are dedicated.
