    Pros

    For some reason, it has a decent name in investment management, especially global investing. Compensation is in line with much better investment management firms.

    Cons

    Management never worked in research, so the leaders of the firm are sales and operations people, not investors. That leads to a culture where process is unimportant, and shortcuts to strong performance are taken. Of course, there are no effective long-term shortcuts in investment management, so the best people leave and the mediocre people do whatever they can to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time thinking about what works long-term in the industry and what does not. When you hire, try to understand how passionate potential employees are about the job
