    I have been working at eVestment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture is probably the top reason why this is a phenomenal place to work at. And that's not just in terms of people, or day-to-day activities, but work ethics and integrity too. Everyone here, including the executives, takes responsibility for their own mistakes immediately, without hesitation.

    It feels like the executives really care about the employees too. The things they do and sacrifice to make our lives better and easier is unexpected. On holidays, they even offer to give people rides home if they've had a little too much to safely drive, even if it means the executive has to leave their house at 3am and go pick them up first.

    The executives listen and learn too. They know they're human, and they know they can improve too. We wanted more stability in our long-term project roadmaps, they let us create a structure (anything we wanted!) for that and they adapted to what we built. We wanted mirrors in the gym, and we got mirrors. We complained about the commute, and they worked with the city government to get the parking lot adjusted to improve the commute.

    Also, the executives bought the company an Xbox One and a 70" TV to play it on. Woot. Work hard, play hard.

    I think the overall picture is that everyone at eVestment, including the executives, act like mature, responsible adults in every fashion. This leads to better communication, better work, and a better workplace. It's what makes eVestment a fantastic place to work at.

    Cons

    The commute. That's probably the only thing. But management is taking steps to help with that too.

    I have been working at eVestment full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Pay and benefits are solid as well. Very family-friendly culture despite having lots of younger employees. Employees are trusted to get work done and not micro managed.

    Cons

    Some growing pains as the company gets larger. Some standardization of agile processes and training on those processes would be helpful in getting everyone on the same page. On the technology side, some outdated or unpopular frameworks are used, though employees are encouraged to expirement with 10% time projects which keeps your skills fresh. New office building is great, but we could be a little bit more eco-friendly and get a recycling program going for the absurd number of free sodas that I drink a day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it. It's great to have accessible and approachable c suite executives.

    Pros

    If you're a runner --- new opportunities will come your way. Very easy to work directly with C-Suite level management on a regular basis if you want that challenge. Unlimited PTO, weekly lunch every Wednesday for EVERYONE, on-site gym, fitness challenges and so much more.

    Cons

    Located inside the Perimeter which can be challenging if commuting from outside the Perimeter

    Pros

    From those who have chosen to leave and explore career development elsewhere, I've consistently heard various forms of the phrase, "You have no idea how good you have it there..."

    I've been with eVestment longer than many, and while the opportunity to leave has come up, this phrase is one of the many, many reasons why I have continued to stay.

    Cons

    I have no major cons worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    Stay connected, and keep doing the good work.

    Pros

    Very client focused firm that provides a great work experience with a focus on work and quality of life.

    Cons

    Leadership makes most of the calls, which is not a bad thing per se, so you have to be very persuasive to initiate change

    Pros

    Growing company with many opportunities to develop and learn. Great team atmosphere where everyone helps each other. Great benefits and work-life balance. Company Office is very modern and well maintained.

    The commute is a little longer than I'd like, but it is still bearable.

    As we grow and become more of a corporation than a business, keep the focus on the grass roots that have made this company so successful.
