    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PineBridge Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Somewhat lax environment relative to a Blackstone or some other top tier asset management firm - $80 billion asset manager so it looks good on your resume and you could finesse that into a better paying job at another firm

    Cons

    - Losing AUM which means less money for the firm which means less money in the form of bonuses and raises for employees whether they're a top performer or not or whether their particular business line made money. Raises and bonuses for people who got promoted were not good. - constantly trying to create new products to keep up with the runoff on AUM - heard from multiple people that they were incentivized to inflate AUM figures - name of the game is to maintain AUM even if it's not financially viable so products are offered with rock bottom fee structures only for investors to redeem a few months later
