Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Walnut Creek, CA

Pros

Additional PTO from working busy season hours
Diverse crowd of people to work with
Firm events (Picnic, Holiday party)
Extensive exposure into the hedge fund industry
Ability for seniors to manage clients and coach new staff

Cons

Unrealistic budgets and expectations
Lack of training opportunity for new staff (start in mid-November but only have little time to prepare for busy season which can overwhelm them)
Very long hours during busy season and even for jobs out of season
Management having the quick trigger of letting people go

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees of what they need to help them to achieve success in the firm. Most often when giving performance reviews it can hurt the staff's confidence and management really needs to help out the staff from a humanistic standpoint.
