    "Would be nice to see more women in investment roles"

    I have been working at U.S. Trust full-time

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is optimal- While it depends on the business division, generally, the org is supportive of different working arrangements

    Cons

    - Salary: Once you are employed here it is very hard to receive compensation that increases as responsibility does. The senior managers seem to do well, but that doesn't trickle down when it comes to bonuses primarily. - Lack of initiatives to support and promote women: I'm always surprised to see the parent company touted as a diversity leader- maybe in other areas of the Bank, but not at US Trust. You will find most of the female employees in administrative roles (Trust Administration/ Business Support). Most offices can count the number of women in investment roles on one hand, if at all. It's disappointing and shows that the company doesn't really understand where future wealth will be generated. This side of the organization is more elitist and archaic compared to other areas of the business.

    I worked at U.S. Trust full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a decent way to learn the investment management business. You're surrounded by some smart and helpful people. Work life balance is reasonable. Benefits are ok but like most companies are getting worse over time.

    Cons

    Poor management especially in the Midwest. It's more about compliance than trying to do best for the client. Lacks any type of vision and focus. Systems need an actual upgrade, not just a bunch of band aids.

    I worked at U.S. Trust full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you don't know anything about investments you will be overpaid Work life balance Friendly employees If you're lucky you'll be placed on a team with bright portfolio managers and exposure to sales teams. Decent reporting systems.

    Cons

    If you do know about investments or bring value you will be underpaid. If you're not lucky, you'll be stuck doing administrative work for your PM and have no development. Structure does not promote growth or development. Very high turnover of the brightest employees. Too much useless middle management. Lack of transparency in the company has created an environment with zero trust by all employees. Direct manager has only administrative experience and has no communication with your PM about your work output. No idea on how to develop young employees. Will make up "opportunities" for you such as organizing breakfast for a wholesaler meeting as a way for your to get "exposure". They don't have a secretary so a lot of that work will fall on the portfolio assistants. If you do quit, they never let you finish your two weeks. Management takes it personally and doesn't let you transition your work properly which causes problems for the employees leftover trying to figure everything out with no direction.
