    I have been working at Geode Capital Management as an intern

    Pros

    Really smart and dedicated people, management is really caring, very collaborative environment of diverse thinkers. Very good culture and professional atmosphere. Geode Capital Management will probably be one of the best investment firms to work for in the next few years.

    Honestly none, although maybe a bit intense at times.

    Pros

    Fun, interesting projects. Always found new things to work on and gained a lot of valuable experience.

    Pros

    The people are great. No egos or politics, just good people to work with. More like a big family than other companies I've worked for. Small company, so the CEO still knows the most junior people by name. Extremely reasonable hours for a money manager--the office is pretty much empty by 7 PM.

    Cons

    Responsibilities are not well delineated, innovation is not a priority. Focus is on expanding product line rather than enhancing existing products.

    Advice to Management

    Get junior staff more involved with the ins and out of fund management. Unclear path from research side to portfolio management.
