    Pros

    Strong emphasis on qualifications. Opportunities available to up skill e.g. CFA and other quals if you dig deeper. Nice, very-capable, approachable colleagues and managers. Nice offices (up/down desks as standard). Good location (London), away from City. Ability to take on more responsibilities if capable and willing to work long hours (you may/may-not be rewarded for it). Normal hours (middle office) reasonable. Pay is acceptable, nothing to write home about. Great in-house IT support.

    Cons

    Reluctance to allow regular WFH schedule. Limited networking culture compared to other places I've experienced. Very routine work. Knowing Germany will help. Culture, doesn't feel like there is one.

    Pros

    PIMCO will take care of you if you can put in the hard work and long hours. They are the best of the best and this is reflected in their expectations.

    Cons

    Inter-team dependencies and inefficient means of communication can cause projects to have insufficient time and resources. Long hours and lots of stress, not sure if Newport Beach is worth it.

    Culture is getting worse

    May 27, 2016 - Quantitative Analyst in Newport Beach, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You can get an good understanding of the financial market, but not much upside potential

    Cons

    The culture is obviously no good - that's also explained by Gross's leave. Long hours of work and not appreciated unless you get the results your boss want - usually the department head will think of a conclusion and you find evidence to prove it, even it is not right.
