    I have been working at NEPC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and locations. Ability to work from home and independently is a bonus. A lot of great people with the organization.

    Cons

    The pay is lower here especially if you're brought up through the ranks. Need to be able to pay employees what their worth and not get away with cheap labor because they've been there so long.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees that are dedicated and loyal who consistently go above and beyond as much or more than new hires that have yet to prove themselves.

  5. "First Job"

    I have been working at NEPC full-time

    Pros

    NEPC was my first job out of school. The people at the company are good people and I get along well with them. It seemed like it would be a good starting to a career in the investment industry. NEPC also will reimburse for tests (CFA, CAIA, etc). Hours aren't bad.

    Cons

    The job isn't particularly challenging or thrilling and the pay isn't great. Not as much contact as I would like with upper level employees.

    Advice to Management

    More ways to interact with the higher members at NEPC. They have some opportunities but they are limited.

    "Internship"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Lots of well versed and talented consultants
    - Ability to sit in on client meetings
    - Convenient location

    Cons

    - Underworked, under-managed
    - In a unique environment, your workload is very mundane
    - Manager would sit around the corner, but rarely came by to check-in, would only email
    - Little cohesiveness between team members

    Advice to Management

    Actively manage. That's why you're put in that position. Provide leadership training for managers, not just time-based promotions.

    I have been working at NEPC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Encourages growth within the firm. Best culture I have worked in since leaving school. For the most part, people are interested in seeing you succeed.

    Cons

    There are times when compensation may appear to be lower than what is truly deserved, but it is mostly the consultant business model itself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide employees with opportunities to grow. Keep junior level employees updated on business plans of the company.

    I worked at NEPC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior management is approachable and genuinely cares about employees. The same can't always be said for practice group leaders; however, that isn't to say that they don't care at all. Opportunities to stretch yourself are there if you know how to navigate the hierarchy.

    Cons

    Jumping through hoops should be included in the job description.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more active role in developing the next generation of management and leaders internally. External hires only work for so long and end up being more costly in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head from your nether region. Remember there is a little thing called karma, so be careful. And stop driving Mr. Charlton's hard work to the ground because thats whats happening

    I worked at NEPC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly young analysts.
    Good industry exposure for those just starting out in finance.
    CFA & CAIA reimbursement.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunity; both professional & personal.
    Small firm with large firm feel (i.e. upper management can be cold & disconnected at times).

    Advice to Management

    Increased investment in the development of your employees will lead to less turnover and a boost in moral. Encourage greater/ broader interaction between Analysts & Consultants
