    Pros

    Exposure to challenging strategic objectives is a key contributor to employees' growth and development, and this is something that the Leadership Team does a fantastic job of by involving individuals and departmental teams to leverage their expertise and advice.

    The robust benefits offering, flexibility and emphasis on work-life balance makes eVestment an incredible workplace where new and long-time associates can and want to thrive.

    Cons

    None to mention, all very positive.

    Pros

    Fast-Pasted and Extremely Collaborative. Room for growth and tools to help you advance your career. Great environment with lots of company sponsored events and relaxed but productive and challenging atmosphere. Working with Smart, Fun, Talented, Motivated and FUN people to continue to grow a company that I truly feel invested in as a valued employee.

    Cons

    New office near Glenridge Connector has worsened my commute but the pros far outweigh this con and flexible schedule allows me to work 7 to 4 and miss as much possible as is humanly possible in Atlanta.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Stay visible. Knowing that the founders are still actively involved and working with all of us to continue growing this great company is wonderful inspiration.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO policy was great
    Good work life balance
    Great people

    Cons

    Customer satisfaction lagging behind increasing sales
    Some teams are ruled by corporate politics and the good ole boys network
    They've bought into their own hype and are forming an echo chamber

    Advice to Management

    You're an industry leader, but that doesn't mean you're invulnerable. Listen to the good and the bad when people are willing to be honest.

    Pros

    The company truly cares about employees and it frequently shows.

    Cons

    The new location isn't the best for those who commute and it would be nice to see more emphasis placed on cross functional communication.

    Advice to Management

    Stay ambitious!

    Pros

    The company focuses on culture. So it filters out people with personality problems. The employees are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Since this company grew a lot over last decade or so, they hire a lot of young folks and if you are old school, you might feel a little out of place.

    Advice to Management

    Hire older folks too

    Pros

    The work environment is by far the most fun and inspiring atmosphere I have ever personally witnessed at a professional company. Everyone here seems to be self-motivated to work hard and play even harder. When I show up to work on a typical day, I really feel as though I'm going to hang out with a bunch of friends instead of just "coworkers". The benefits (which I find more than acceptable) include weekly catered lunches, numerous team events, and fun activities throughout the year that inspire teamwork and innovation throughout the company.

    Cons

    It is honestly tough to come up with a list of cons, but no business model is perfect. The only thing that comes to mind is that because we have so many remote employees scattered about the country, I rarely get to know other employees who don't work directly in the Atlanta office. We do get everyone together at our annual year-end meeting and that is a lot of fun, but it would be nice to get to see our other coworkers more frequently than once or twice per year.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to continue to stay humble even through your incredible success and numerous achievements. You really have made this a great place to work and I hope the fun-filled environment won't be degraded over the next few years as expansion continues to grow at a very high rate. So far so good guys - thank you!!

    Great people to work with.
    Benefits are good.

    Pros

    This is honestly a fantastic company to work for - and I am someone that works to live, not lives to work. The focus on client experience is inspiring and palpable. Management goes out of its way to make employees feel engaged and appreciated. There is also a great deal of autonomy and I feel trusted to make the right decisions. Even if I could have done a better job, I feel like I am given the opportunity to hold myself accountable without feeling blamed or judged. In return, I feel loyal to the company and am motivated to excel for mutually beneficial purposes. The work life balance is amazing. So many companies say it is something they offer but very few actually mean it - eVestment does and it makes me that much more productive knowing my time is valued.

    Cons

    - Communication can be disjointed sometimes. Changes are always being made (which is not inherently negative) but the changes and impact on processes are sometimes not communicated to all interested parties.
    - The benefits (aside from PTO!) are average. I think they are moderately expensive and some are very limited (tuition reimbursement, for example).

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on client experience and employee engagement. The culture is unique and special so thank you for creating that!

    Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to learn our "everyone is an owner" mentality is well translated. Better communication is an opportunity for 2017. Thanks for all that you do!

    I have been working at eVestment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Company respects and truly cares about its employees
    - Some of the best 'non-comp' benefits you will ever see. Compares to Silicon Valley. Such as, but not limited to: Unlimited PTO, no 'sick days, catered lunch every Wednesday
    - On-site gym in the Atlanta office
    - Visionary Executive Management

    Cons

    - Don't bother working here if you don't care about your career and the company's goals. This is not a place to work as a 'job'. This is a 'career' type of company.
    - Company cares about its culture. You have to be a culture fit as well as a 'technical fit'.

    Advice to Management

    - Don't lose sight of the big picture
    - Continue to take care of your employees
    - Grow without losing this amazing culture you've worked so hard to build
    - Keep up the good work!!
