      Pros

      Great company overall other than certain teams in IT, great benefits, pay

      Cons

      Not so great senior management, difficult to move up the ladder, very high employee turnover due to contractors being hired to do full time ongoing work to show low head count. Zero work life balance as management doesn't care about their employees.

      Pros

      Lots of different investment groups which means multiple initiatives that are undertaken; great opportunity to learn about various groups; brand recognition, work / life balance; benefits

      Cons

      Nicknamed the "chinese pension plan" and I saw this first hand - the ops and admin team is 80-90% asian; firm doesn't fire bad managers which results in dissent and frustration for team; people are not friendly and generally cold unless they know you (could be because of first reason) - no one says hi to you in the elevators nor is there any eye contact; difficult to move around to different groups in the firm although they encourage it
