    Pros

    Great company culture, very relaxed work environment and very social as well. If you stay long enough they will be generous to you.

    Cons

    No flexibility at all with regards to hours, working from home, etc. Very few opportunities for outside training or learning.

    Advice to Management

    A little flexibility with regards to hours, as well as enabling people to work from home on occasion, would go a long way towards making employees happier.

    I have been working at Marathon Asset Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can actually learn if you find the right people willing to teach you. That being said, most employees aren't willing to teach because of job security.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, management bases everything on face time. Management is clueless as to the day to day operations of the firm. Typically, they play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Should start valuing its employees and treat them as assets for the firm.

    I worked at Marathon Asset Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - beautiful office space and working environment
    - some cool co-workers
    - great place to learn and be very busy

    Cons

    - has got a fair share of selfish and angry employees, watch your back, don't trust your manager
    - work environment can be unprofessional
    - promise one thing, deliver another. they lured me with the promise of a certain bonus and didn't even come close...every year there was another excuse (ie our fund didn't do as expected, you make more than your peers, etc...)
    - some clients said they'd never do business with Marathon again, this concerned me and is why I left

    Advice to Management

    - do more 360 degree reviews and fire the senior executives who don't know how to manage
    - focus more on clients and making them happy, so they will do business with you again

    Pros

    Great brand, smart people, successfull

    Cons

    weak communication; advancement is uncertain and appears at times to be arbitrary

    Pros

    the midtown location was nice, I guess. The view was also quite nice.

    Cons

    The culture was a poor fit for my personality (ie: an awesome person.) Little room for advancement. The office is understaffed, and promotions/bonuses did not seem to be merit/performance-based. If you're hoping for a shop that rewards enthusiastic people who start from the ground up and have a willingness to learn, move along and find a smaller, newer fund to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees- even the entry-level ones!

    Pros

    Financially looked after (good bonus) except for maternity benefits which is only statutory,surprising for a successful financial firm

    Cons

    Statutory maternity benefit is poor in comparison to other finance firms.Not much interaction between different departments,more company mtgs would b good.

    Advice to Management

    To resolve any differences
