    Pros

    Incredible junior team who was very helpful given that I wanted to learn a great deal during a short, 6 week internship. Every member of the team at all levels was willing to share their specific knowledge whenever asked. Very much an "open-door" environment.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, but due to the nature of the internship program, we were not able to work overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome team, should be very proud of the impact you made on the interns. The HR team was also extremely helpful throughout the program.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    None. There is nothing good about Neuberger Berman. It is a horrible place to work. The management from the CEO down is absolutely horrendous.

    Cons

    I don't even know where to begin with the cons of a company like Neuberger Berman. As one Managing Director once bragged, "we don't get rid of people, we just torture them until they quit." That same Managing Director also made negative comments about the women who reported to him and based all of his critiques on their physical attributes. If you want to work for the Deltas from Animal House, then you have found the company you are looking for. I only wish there was a way to leave negative stars. One star is far too generous.
