Pros

- The firm is well known in the world of hedge funds.

Cons

- If you're not based in Milwaukee, employees are treated as a different class of employees.
- Employees are not given an opportunity to invest directly in the subportfolio they manage.
- The 401k plan through Marshall & Illsey is atrocious. There isn't an opportunity for employees to grow long-term wealth beyond their salaries.
- Since senior management is so involved in the aggregate portfolio, they sometimes lack the proper management of a firm that is now considerably larger (i.e. not recognize skills/talents of associates that may be underutilized, etc.)

Advice to Management

- Step back and decide which partners will focus solely on portfolio issues and which parters will focus on business issues to be more effective.
- Give analysts the opportunity to demonstrate investment talent. There are may traders not listening to their analysts and performance would have been MUCH better if some of the analyst recommendations were followed. A true meritocracy would allow analysts to demonstrate talent via model portfolios that could eventually open opprtunities for them as traders.

    Company is too top heavy and not enough management fees to keep good employees; no investment direction, adverse selection in employees who are quitting vs staying.
