    Je travaille chez PIMCO à depuis moins d'un an

    Avantages

    Easy work, free soda, prestigious firm to put on resume, work with the smartest finance people in the world. Higher than normal pay grade (30 +/hr). 4 weeks vaca for Full Time employees. VERY NICE PEOPLE WORK HERE!!!!

    Inconvénients

    Temp life is hard, no benefits, treated less than. Full time employees seem to be nice to your face but talk to mgmt behind your back for petty things like cell phone use or leaving the desk and not announcing it every time. Admin Assistant work as a young man is some what emasculating, but that's the job title. Hoping this job title does not define my future. Nothing too too bad to put here.

    Conseils à la direction

    Please give temps a legitimate time frame for "temp to perm." I have heard people getting FT anywhere from 6 months to a year and 6 months. This can be annoying as we temps are not given paid sick days or benefits. Also, please be transparent when communicating your complaints.

    Avantages

    They keep everyone, no matter what mistakes you make on the job. Temp to perm; you will become full-time 80% of the time. They can't hire and keep talent.

    Inconvénients

    Management is always busy, hard to discuss anything. The play the favoritism game. If they like you, they will go around rules/policies to make things happen. If they don't favor you then you are just out of luck, promotions after 5 years - 1 promotion. Not very open about anything. Admins are always kept in the dark unless you are well liked

    Conseils à la direction

    You need to form a better open communication channel. Let everything be a fair process.

    Avantages

    Activities and lunch in the building is offered at times. Management has the best intentions..

    Inconvénients

    Expects you to be available all the time and has a very stiff environment. Each department stays to themselves and is very cliquey making new people or temps to feel like part of the team. Temps are under appreciated while expecting a lot like they were a regular full time employee. I felt that people were very judgmental in the way you spoke, the way you dress, etc.

    Conseils à la direction

    Communicate with one another so that we are all on the same page. Trying to save costs in hiring contractors leaves people unhappy with high turnover. Contractors do not feel appreciated as a person or a team member. If you are going to work them as much as a full time employee and have the same expectations, then pay them as such.

    Je travaille chez PIMCO à depuis plus d'un an

    Avantages

    - Good work/life balance - Good managers There's no other pros in my opinion

    Inconvénients

    -No training - Low morale - No feedback - Admin managers are extremely dishonest

    Conseils à la direction

    Admin roles seem to be a revolving door. You need to work on training and setting up new employees for success. The time you take to lie about employees' future with the company is the same opportunity you can take to have new employees properly trained, developed and be put in a space to succeed. Make sure the seasoned admins are actually training new employees properly. So much time is being wasted having new... employees start to meet with a million different admins who each explain things differently, they explain things as if one size fits all and when you ask for help admins seem to be annoyed or speak to you as if you're incompetent for not understanding the first time. If you're going to put people in sink/swim positions at least give them all the tools and have someone who is well versed in training (who is mentally tough enough not to be easily annoyed when asked simple questions). This could be why Pimco is constantly hiring for Admin positions. Culture is horrible for admins.

    Avantages

    Newport beach is a great location.

    Inconvénients

    PIMCO has their assistants start as temps so you don't receive health benefits until around 6 months. Considering most assistants are females this seems fairly discriminatory and and ugly practice for a finance company. Wages are not even market value.

    Avantages

    Competitive salary, great health benefits, competitive end of year bonus structure. Good growth potential.

    Inconvénients

    Long hours, ultra conservative corporate culture, co-workers are smart but present themselves as extremely entitled.

    Conseils à la direction

    Management seems to be actively working to fix the corporate culture by allowing more flexibility in work hours, location, and breaking up the office monotony but more could be done to push that through to all areas and departments.

    Avantages

    Work environment is well structured and therefore predictable. Colleagues are amicable. Workload is reasonable. Work-life balance is reasonable.

    Inconvénients

    Though management presents itself initially as transparent, this is not always actually the case. Some promises are made that are then ignored.

    Conseils à la direction

    Be more honest and direct with employees concerning areas such as vacation, benefits, overtime, etc., though overall things are run very fairly

    - Excellent working facilities includes a cafeteria and gym with showers - Amazing View of the Ocean - Great health care benefits, dental, life insurance options & 401K - Good employee volunteer program - Professional setting; suits, ties and pant suits, Wall Street meets Beach Life

    Inconvénients

    - Administrative Supervisors lack TRUE & GENUINE leadership qualities and lack knowledge on cultivating careers of their subordinates that want to grow within the firm - Very clique-oriented & gossip-driven; Supervisors gossip about subordinates' personal and processional issues with other non-supervisors; Complete HR issue but they just get slaps on the wrists. - Good and dedicated employees are not promoted... despite reaching all marks on this ridiculous matrix - Senior tenured admins are given special treatments to new roles and positions despite how un-knowledgeable they are with new roles - High turn over for New Hires and if they stay on, they are put on contract for months to years. - The work expected of you does not match the title given despite the industry and competitor standards; titles are Admin Assistant, Senior Admin Assistant, Coordinator, Senior Coordinator, and then Supervisor. The type of tasks given to us are deemed more as Executive Assistants but the only admins that hold those titles are the admins in the "Executive Office" but the last I checked, if you support Executives (i.e. VPs, SVPs, EVPs, & Managing Directors in other departments) that would constitute you being an Assistant to Executives, hence Executive Assistants. - If admins are interested in other positions within the firm, they have to go through their supervisors to approve their application. WHY? Most supervisors don't want you to leave because it'll 'shuffle things around' and create more work for them.

    Conseils à la direction

    PIMCO recently cleared out tenured administrative supervisors; however, divided various departments among the remaining supervisors. Unfortunately, setting Goals & Objectives are just to 'check a box' of HR but these Supervisors are not trained, hold personal vendettas against other subordinates for outshining them at one point and are unwilling to really cultivate others. A survey was taken earlier in 2016 on how... people felt about their management; some supervisors took it personal and gave attitudes to their subordinates instead of improve themselves. Supervisors are aware of upcoming projects and needs of each department and should help implement these to their employees in their G&Os. PIMCO has to care more of the foundation that helps support the executives. Bonuses and salary increases were still given this year but not as high as previous years. Nonethless, we were at least given that as we're not entitled to it. It's a great stepping stone into the financial firm but if you're looking to make a career out of it, be content with being stagnant.

    Please listen to employees and please don't take into account the feedback from others. It is also vital to make it a healthy environment where you don't feel uncomfortable. I would advise management to consider motivating their employees to grow.
