    I worked at Safra Asset Management

    Pros

    A lot of the more senior guys are incredibly intelligent and willing to teach you. If you screw up, they're show you where you went wrong and help you rather than yell at you.

    Cons

    It was an unpaid internship, but there's not much you can do about that. There's really no way for an intern to be hired full-time.

  2. "Typical AM Experience, w/ typical small-size pros/cons"

    • Senior Management
    Former Intern - Advisory Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Safra Asset Management for less than a year

    Pros

    Small, collegiate, and highly intelligent team overall. Once you earn your keep, you can perform quite high-level activities (due-dil visits, macro research etc.) AM business means relatively predictable (and good) hours. Staff is VERY open to teach you all they know - all you have to do is ask and be nice.

    Cons

    It is a relatively unstructured operation (and I specifically mean the operations part of the business). Roll up your sleeves and prepare to dive into factsheets. This is not an office for the coy - you'll have a terrible time if you don't speak up and ask if you can perform higher-level assignments. Hitting that "sweet spot" where you begin to move on up may happen too late if you're an intern/temp. A lot of face time and client-driven nitpicking - it's AM after all.

    I have been working at Safra Asset Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's free coffee and being that this isn't a big bank it is somewhat flexible.

    Cons

    Little growth opportunities. Type of place is better used as a stepping stone. Also, if your relative is a client of the bank your are treated like God. Also, IT might have down syndrome.

    Hostile environment with low chances of getting promotions, and that doesn't help to develop a meritocracy environment.
