    Soul-destroying, incredibly political and cliquey, high employee turnover

    I worked at Pimco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brand label on your CV

    Cons

    Extremely political culture that detracts from real work, most people spend more time managing their images than managing money;
    Junior employees and non-MBA employees are treated like disposable resources and no investment in made in these "second-class" slaves;
    Poor compensation vs opportunities on sellside (all concentrated at top);
    If you want to work here it is purely to get the name on your CV - this is a horrible place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider changing the hyper political culture and let progression be based on merit, not pedigree MBAs

    I applied online - interviewed at Pimco.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing process was very extensive, long interviews, you meet with several different members of HR team. Everyone is extremely nice and helpful. Fairly basic interview. I like that you got to meet with so many members of the department because it gave you a good idea of the different types of people you would be working with on a day to day basis.
