    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at SEI Investments full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Love the atmosphere, company outlook is rapidly increasing. 3,000 employees on campus, plenty of channels to grow if you seek them yourself.

    Cons

    Entry level is what it says it is. entry to the company. The pay is below average in Ops and seemingly the same for accountants. Once you work past Ops, your pay rate rises tremendously. Anyone who keeps their head down and puts the time in should move up and out of entry level-like positions.

    Advice to Management

    Ops management micromanages the "hourly" workers, no OT. Not enough positive feedback on a job well done.

    I have been working at SEI Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Open environment to openly ask and receive help. Status is very minimal, everyone from entry level to the CEO sits at the same type of desk, no offices. Room to create your own processes and experiment with different software to your own ability.

    Cons

    Not a very competitive salary. In some cases a promotion means taking a paycut...which makes literally no sense at all. The hierarchy is very skewed, for example my supervisor literally did nothing and knew nothing, brought negative value to SEI and somehow was a supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    figure it out and pay your employees fairly. 3 people from my team have already left this year and i plan on doing the same.

    Good benefits package and concierge services on site. Friendly people and nice work facilities. Also pretty good training.
