      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Federated Investors full-time

      Pros

      Good salary Good 401K matching Warrendale office is very nice

      Cons

      Dress policy - wearing a suit everyday is very annoying Lots of red tape to get anything done - takes a long to update software and make any advancements Poor project managers - the majority of project meetings end with people more confused than before No sense of individualism - many managers just want you to work and don't care about having relationships with employees No overtime - many employees work additional hours...

      Advice to Management

      Change the dress policy, only do agile projects, focus more on the employees, provide overtime pay

      Pros

      There is a family atmosphere and a high tenure for employees. The health benefits and 401(k) are decent.

      Cons

      Not much offered as far as non-standard benefits (work from home, vacation buy-up, etc). Depending on department, there is not a lot of opportunity for growth.
