    I worked at TCW full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for 5 years at TCW. I started in the internal marketing group. I learned the fundamentals of the investment management industry and got great exposure to portfolio managers, analysts, investment teams and the investment manager due diligence process. There were significant growth opportunities at the time as I was promoted twice, eventually to RVP Central US where I marketed the firm's investment portfolios. The firm also supported me in earning the CFA while I was there.

    Cons

    No Cons to speak of.

    I worked at TCW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good balance of work/home life. Great people to work alongside. Opportunities for new experiences exists. A lot of folks have been there a long time.

    Cons

    Salaries were a bit under market and politics exist. Because a lot of people stay there many years, opportunities for advancement are restricted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the business and promote from within.

    I worked at TCW (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer meals at the headquarters, but they deduct it from pay. They offer parking, also take it out of pay.

    Cons

    I had the worst manager in my career being there for 11 months. The benefits are minimal. The work atmosphere is completely hierarchical and the individuals there are abrasive and closed minded. Their platforms are outdated. Overall it was a terrible experience and they habitually asked me to break laws and my personal ethics

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the upper management in place. Allow for career advancement that doesn't involve kissing up to management.

    Pros

    I didn't meet a single person that wasn't willing to help me or teach me something. I not only met the CEO and talked with him several times but even the founder of the company. Everyone is extremely intelligent and all take time to help you get the most out of your internship.

    Cons

    I think for some of the law interns or MBA interns it was hard to get a lot of work handed to you. I heard some of them were bored and not given enough to do during the day. If you don't have an outgoing personality it can be hard to meet people.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with the interns a little more. They might not have had a lot to do that was pertaining to their internship.
