Pros

Good entry level place to get experience. Good place to retire if you have no ambition and don't care about career growth.

Cons

Salary increases are pathetic. No opportunities for growth. Management is always looking to give you a rating of 3 or less so they can avoid paying you a decent compensation increase. If you are liked by your manager, you get flexible work at home. If you not liked by management, you have to come to work.
Like to outsource to India, then hire the FTE's back as temp assignments at lower pay and no benefits when outsourcing fails! Pathetic...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

How's outsourcing to India going? Guess you got your fat bonuses eh? Can't believe PIMCO is paying for this pathetic mess.

    Pros

    Worked on a very big client, Blackrock, which has a large mutual fund mix and got great exposure to municipal bond funds, mortgage backed funds, international equity funds, forex, and a large array of derivatives. Pay was ok.

    Cons

    Work was a bit mundane, not much flexibility at all to do anything, even excel spreadsheets were locked by IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to say since State Street closed the office and laid off everyone.
