    I worked at Sands Capital Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -- Support to continue education and provide resources necessary to learn/grow/develop
    -- Clear pathways to progress
    -- Focus on preserving positive culture, evidenced by high retention
    -- Hours (relative to hedge fund or investment banking)
    -- Peers are supportive

    Cons

    -- Largely uniform background experiences/walks of life/demography of those on investment team
    -- Tough to get to know superiors outside of work
    -- Entrenched practices and process take time to change
    -- Stage in growth is limiting scope of upward mobility for those in junior positions

    Advice to Management

    -- Diversify the team!

    Pros

    Sands is a very collaborative and supportive environment. Everyone there is very willing to answer questions and offer guidance.

    Cons

    The firm is small so you are offered limited exposure and movement.
