    I worked at Pioneer Investments as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My manager and my team were awesome. They let me do my work, trusted me with responsibilities, respected me, and made me feel like I was a valued member of the team.

    The CEO was also working on my floor and she would always say hello to me and ask me how I was doing.

    Pay is pretty good (for a internship), the break rooms are nice, and they provide you with the resources you need.

    Cons

    Can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Pioneer Investments as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company prides itself on having a great corporate culture and it is a very nice place to work. I highly recommend.

    Cons

    At this time the only con to working at Pioneer is the potential sale by the parent company. Hopefully the new parent will buy the company and not just the funds.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.

    I have been working at Pioneer Investments (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pioneer is the friendliest place I've ever worked, and they are great for maintaining a sense of work/life balance. Many companies talk about being team-oriented but Pioneer really does have a sense of team that goes beyond just verbiage.

    They have a very democratic approach to solving issues, with everyone having a chance to express an opinion and be heard. Pioneer has a number of offices across the world and with their global approach it makes for an interesting place to work.

    Good benefits overall.

    Cons

    They're beginning the process of merging with Santander's asset management group, so how that will affect Pioneer's workplace and work culture is to be determined. Their democratic approach can also lead to "analysis paralysis" in some cases that can take a while to resolve issues. Benefits are good, but salaries perhaps lag a bit behind some of their competitors. (But their better work/life balance than most means you won't be expected to constantly put in the intense hours those other firms may expect.)

    I worked at Pioneer Investments full-time

    Pros

    Smaller firm with friendly people. Laid back office in a great location.

    Cons

    The lack of communication with senior management aids the disorganization of the firm. Dated technology, lack of leadership, and unstable work environment due to pending merger are the main cons of the firm. The merger is also leading to increased turnover and low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and lead with respect for your colleagues. Mentor younger employees to make them feel valued.
