Pros

1. The culture at Wellington Management encourages cross-functional discussions of problems and issues. There is little hierarchy, and any employees who want to join a committee are encouraged to do so.
2. The benefits package here is unrivaled in the industry, with a major focus on health care and well-being.
3. Work/life balance is easy to achieve when warranted. However, some colleagues have a harder time with this than others.

Cons

Investment people seems to be dissatisfied with career advancement opportunities, but at the same time Wellington is very measured in its approach to most things. Be patient and opportunities will arise.

The culture, although collaborative and academic, is externally conservative so if you do not like wearing a suit and tie, or business formal, on a daily basis, this company is not for you.

Advice to Management

Continue with pushing the culture with employees and encourage others to join committees and cross-functional teams to approach issues with fresh ideas.

Institute a formal feedback system to measure performance in order to be more transparent about compensation.

    "Demanding, High Quality Business with Decidedly Mixed IT Managers"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Culture is important to the company even if the model has suffered since the 2008 market meltdown. For a technologist, the company is a relatively early adopter of new technologies, and has a strong relationship with many technology companies. Still its business is managing money, and technology is merely the handmaiden. Despite rhetoric about the business/technology partnership, IT heads will roll in a turndown much faster than those of money managers. Benefits and total compensation is very good.

    Cons

    Too many have been there too long. Perry has never worked anywhere else of significance, and that is true of many other senior officers. Since this is a partnership and not a public company, the tendency to be "clubby" and protect the "club" above all is strong, tempered mostly by a deep commitment to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Continually review the overall strength of management and managers. Guard against increasing the difference between how the money managers and everyone else is treated. Seek to continually find new thought leaders from outside the company (and even industry) in critical areas.

    "Wellington has the potential to be a great place to work, but it needs some massaging"

    Pros

    The money and benefits are pretty good. The financial professionals are very good at what they do. They tend to hire very smart people, although some not so smart people sometimes make it in the door

    Cons

    Within IT/IS Wellington is VERY political. You can be a star performer in the eyes of the financial groups, but IT/IS doesn't seem to care. Senior management within IT/IS only care about their own personal agendas which doesn't really help the company achieve success. There isn't a singular goal to make Wellington great success. It's all about personal achievement to receiving that all important bonus. The cream of the crop does NOT float to the top within IT/IS, the whey does. The cream tends to sink to the bottom and curdle then leave. In order to advance within the organization, you need to think like a presidential candidate and campaign for your advancement with senior managers that typically have nothing to do with you. It's ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    The top level management needs to implement a 180 degree review. Senior IT/IS management needs an overhaul.
