    I have been working at Neuberger Berman full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Small feel, but this is a large 2nd tier, Investment Bank. Back office to front office mobility is there for qualified individuals who desire to make the move.

    Cons

    Too many project managers who don't know the specialty within which they operat.. This is typical considering the ever increasing specialization within any industry.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, people are really friendly and employees are given the opportunity to move around within different departments

    Cons

    Salary maybe a little lower on average compared to other plays but this in turn is compensated by the great work life balance the company provides.

    I have been working at Neuberger Berman full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Above average compensation, but great benefits, bonus etc.
    - Good work life balance.
    - Very smart people to work with.
    - Nice promotional track with no politics.
    - Management is good too.
    - Rapidly growing company with new client base increasing constantly

    Cons

    Not any that I can think of. Tuition reimbursement at the subsidiary level is very low for the employees who wants to pursue graduate degrees. At the parent level it is very reasonable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Neuberger Berman full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is very conducive to a healthy work/life balance. They truly care that you manage your life in a way that fits to your needs (working from home, sick days, leaving early when needed, etc.). The unspoken philosophy is that as long as you get your work done efficiently and done well, you have great flexibility. The mentorship opportunities are also fantastic throughout the firm regardless of your title. People are extremely willing and happy to help. Finally, the firm's dedication to philanthropic endeavors is tremendous and genuine across the whole firm. It's a true advantage to working there.

    Cons

    Training for new employees is a constant struggle, but an area of improvement the firm is aware of. Compensation for back office jobs is thankless and often unrecognized. Analytics of work flow can prove the discrepancy in work and compensation.
