    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tenure associates have good health benefits, medical, vison and dental for family even for part time associates. 401k retirement as well.

    Cons

    Management from store directors, district mgrs to top management treat the supervisory mgrs and the labors with disrespect no regard for their human life.
    More worker's and hours are needed to accomplish the unreasonable daily tasks.
    It is not human nature for one to work at their max on a daily basis. This can be very debilitating after time. Supervisory managers are treated like slaves. Constant treat of losing ones job. Must be available 24/7. Evening on one's day off as well as Vacation time. Job doesn't pay enough we're not six figure office mgrs. We do the grunt work. No time to manage the impossible. So please do sell sell us you're horrible to work for worse than svu.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP you're ABUSE Bully ING management
    Style. From store mgrs, district managers up. We are human beings.

    Pros

    Smart people, diversified and interesting work. Compensation structure is fair to generous, sufficient numbers of staff at all levels to meet demanding workload of all departments

    Cons

    Ever changing regulatory demands on financial firms and seeking out new investment directions as cycles change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Firm tries to meet work life balance of employees. Many shortcomings of the infrastructure have been overcome with improved technology allowing for less demanding schedule of accountants.

    Some people there are actually very smart. You're very lucky if you actually get to work with them.

    Lackluster, ordinary firm, too much hype not enough substance, employee burnout, mediocre benefits and salary, bonuses aren't competitive, limited training and advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You'd benefit from updating your technical skills and listen to some of the smart people working for you.

    Cerberus bought out AT&T Advertising Solutions recently. I have to say so far both companies have been enjoyable.

    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good salary, ok bonus programs. Good recognition of top notch sales people with trips for rewards. Benefits were great with AT&T, not sure how they will change with Cerberus. Three weeks off each year (personal/vacation) and good tuition reimbursement programs.

    Cons

    No benefits for retired employees, no 401K available as of right now, and only 4-5 pd holidays each year. Bonus changed recently from being obtainable to being very difficult to obtain. It is still doable, just expecting more work for less money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep bonuses feasible so employees have an obtainable goal. Otherwise, looking forward to even more progress.

    I worked at Cerberus Capital Management

    Pros

    - Some of the people are intelligent and nice.

    Cons

    - Huge System/Process issues that make reporting VERY manual and VERY frustrating.
    - Old school mgmt style - senior mgmt often resort to shouting and belittlng employees to motivate them which is VERY counterproductive.
    - Lack of technical expertise at senior management.
    - Lack of training - have to learn most things on your own.
    - Long hours.
    - Lackluster bonus due to declining performance of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Less yelling and more patience so employees do not fear bringing up issues and are more apt to proposing solutions. Take time to understand and address the issues at a detailed level instead of superficial level. Hire people with the technical expertise or with experience with the specific problems of the company.
