    Pros

    Family culture and flat hierarchy. The company invests in developing employees and building strong relationships, and encourages friendly debate and the sharing of different perspectives, all of which contribute to a positive work environment and better investment outcomes.

    Cons

    Expectations are high, and the work is sometimes very fast-paced!

    Smaller company so still limited internal growth opportunities but not relative to its size.

    Great place to work!

    Pros

    Since it's a small-ish company, you can get involved in many areas of the business and really see the fruits of your labor on a daily basis. There are a lot of very smart people working here and the opportunities abound. In my tenure, I have seen a lot of internal movement and career growth throughout the firm. Being on the buy-side is great, and I'm never going back to a big bank. Finally, equity partnership is open to all members of the firm and is a great incentive to work hard and build a career here.

    Cons

    Since it is a deep value shop, they don't pay top dollar. It's a reasonable trade off for the experience and culture though and compensation is competitive. Work/life balance could be better but it's pretty reasonable for a financial services firm.

    Pros

    A great place to work and grow. Friendly, intelligent people and an intellectually honest, open environment. No shortage of interesting exposure and growth.

    Cons

    Need to be good at managing yourself - managers are generous, but prefer to let people figure their own way. Can be great if you're a self-starter

    Pros

    The people are very nice. The pay is pretty good (they aim at 75th percentile). Benefits are good (free health insurance but no dental/vision), 3 weeks vacation (4th week upon 5th year). Option to gain equity ownership (usually takes about 5 years employment to receive this). 401(k) with matching.

    Cons

    There isn't much room for growth. There is no training provided. Work-from-home is highly discouraged, even though everyone is given the technological capabilities.
