    I have been working at Jennison Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work where people are respected no matter what they do. Very well managed on the money side. CEO is new but making things happen. Very talented money managers

    Cons

    Support staff shouldn't have an opinion because you will be ousted for speaking your mind, growth is limited due to Senior level management not wanting to train up.


  2. "Good experience overall but no opportunites for career growth"

    Pros

    nice people, small company, good company culture, good location, good benefits, 9-5 work schedule amkes for a low stress job

    Cons

    management does not show concern for employees, lack of career advancement- they only hire from outside for management/VP level postions

    Advice to Management

    show some concern for the people that work for you- make them feel included and involved in some of the decision making for their work

  3. "Good Friendly People"

    I worked at Jennison Associates as an intern

    Pros

    Meetings and Pizza on Friday

    Cons

    Less Structured, Less Salary to Interns

    Advice to Management

    More salary to Interns and let them work 40 hours per week


  4. "Great benefits and bonus for minimal work"

    Pros

    Nice people, great benefits, bonuses every year, job security, easy day-to-day with minimal expectations from management (good place to coast), great place for moms who need flexibility

    Cons

    Moms get privileges the rest of the employees do not. Managers are clueless about what employees do or don't do. A lot of people doing minimal work with zero repurcussions and getting incentivized just as well as employees who work hard. No opportunity for career growth. Culture rewards bad behavior. Ideal for people at the end of their careers, anyone who want to get paid full time for part time work, or people who want to collect a generous paycheck, bonus, and benefits at other employees expense.

    Advice to Management

    360 reviews, need to be better connected to what actually goes on within your departments.

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed environment and staff members are enjoyable to work with.

    Some of the company practices are questionable and outdated.

    Current Employee - Great Benefits- But Work Somewhere Else

    Pros

    great benefits
    free drinks
    a lot of people have been there along time
    good holiday party
    nice office

    Cons

    no career advancement; people have been there for so long, you get stuck because your manager hasn't left
    pay must be good at the top (why else would people stay), but not good on bottom/once you're stuck
    management doesn't know what they are doing- the more they meet with hr, the worse they seem
    a lot of turnover in certain groups

    Advice to Management

    find ways to reward people-- more responsibility/more money/money something
    be wary of how managers treat other employees. they don't know what they are doing and hr doesn't seem to help
