Former Employee - Investment Analyst in Los Angeles, CA
Former Employee - Investment Analyst in Los Angeles, CA
Approves of CEO

Pros

Good Work / Life Balance (get in the office at 8:30 leave the office at 6:00 (7:00-8:00 during high volume periods, 5:00-5:30 during low volume periods)
Great Benefits (DC and DB plan (DB plan going away))
TW helps you with your actuarial and CFA exams

Cons

Not enough development opportunities. The work can get mundane (typical thought among many practices not just actuarial). May need to work some weekends (maybe two to five times per year for a few hours as client concerns are needed)
Low pay comparative to industry average (it is best to stay for a little while and then jump ship to a competitor)

Advice to Management

Management needs to be better at recognizing people that work hard instead of simply giving everyone relatively the same bonuses despite ability.
