    I worked at MFS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    MFS really believes in work-life balance.
    The management really tries to do the right thing, but can be parochial and myopic about what that is.
    Most of the senior management has never worked anyplace else. The positive of this is that they can be very loyal to their own. The negative of this is that they do not actually seek best practices.

    MFS has grown quickly, partially because of its' competitors' missteps and partially because it itself has done the right things.

    Cons

    still a classic boys' club. if you are a minority of any sort you will hit a glass ceiling

    MFS is not introspective or curious about the outside world. Management believes that because they have been successful, therefore all their approaches must be right.

    It is not really a global firm, despite the rhetoric. It's a local firm that has grown quickly, but the culture is still very much "boys from framingham made good".
