    Great Company

    Fund Controller (Former Employee) Boston, MA (US)

    ProsI had previously work in the AIS Real Estate Performance Measurement area and always impressed at how they continued to search and improve ways to service their clients.

    ConsUpper management wasn't always forthcoming on how they felt about certain business groups.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would recommend having a VP level person running a business group as the lower levels of management don't always have the experience level to properly service the clients. That level is to close to the work many times and can lose sight of what their clients are really looking for.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company low salaries

    Vice President (Former Employee) Boston, MA (US)

    ProsThe company is supportive of work-life balance and has a lot of opportunity to take advantage of their flex policy. The people you work with are really wonderful, smart and professional.

    ConsThe pay is low as compared to other companies similar in size and operation. Often businesses work in silos and it is hard to get things done. Senior management doesn't appear to make an effort to retain the best talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote and retain talent by paying market wages.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    IT Dept Summer Intern

    Intern (Former Employee) Boston, MA (US)

    Not a very good outlook for future management

    Accounting and Pricing Analyst, Senior Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people and relaxed work atmosphere. It is probably a good place to start your career but not a good place to stay.

    ConsThey have moved to segmented business model where it is hard to understand the purpose of your job. This will lead to poor unknowledgeable management in the future. It also seems like they are trying to move as much work as they can to india. In the future they are going to have to find managers from other companies in order to have people that know what they are doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter training so employees will understand the big picture!

    Good Experience, Lots of Hours

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO (US)

    ProsGreat industry experience, pay is competitive once you reach management. Good benefits package.

    ConsOnce you reach management, you work a lot of hours, 10+ hrs a day + weekends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCan't always do more with less, invest in staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
