    I worked at Neuberger Berman full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some truly thoughtful and intelligent investors and service professionals. Success and survival in a competitive industry is a challenge. Good intentions, but much rings false.

    Cons

    Management inward-looking. Top talent leaves. Sense of executives in it for themselves; little listening done unless you're in the inner circle. A lot of boys-club attitude and social biases.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down, don't embrace departures

    Pros

    Great people. Benefits are on par for the industry. Solid bonus compensates for below average salary.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for advancement. Permission from your current supervisor is required before you are allowed to apply for an open position which is problematic for 2 reasons:

    1) It's pretty awkward.
    2) Manager's tend to be possessive/selfish and they often view it as an inconvenience.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be required to conduct REGULAR performance reviews, not just annually. An employee should never be surprised by their review.
