    Pros

    Awesome company. Great vision, even during rocky times. Excellent benefits. They spend money on their employees. Strong salaries. Friendly environment. Great office location.

    Very fast paced, but you are rewarded if you keep up. Projects can be tough, but rewarding when complete. OMAM only hires the best. It's a great company, so finding cons isn't easy.

    Pros

    Inspiring CEO, good pay, great benefits

    While some department may have exercised good work/life balance, the finance group didn't seem to have that mentality. Poor communication and processes with the parent company were frustrating.
