    Avantages

    Macro thinking. Great pay if you’re in product, account management, and PM and VP or above.

    Inconvénients

    Zero upward mobility if you’re part of the pre-MBA crowd. Promotions are based on time for juniors and politics for mid level and above. Analysts and associates are made to feel they’re lucky to even have the opportunity to work there. No chance to move between product/pm/account management groups. For proof look at the number of senior leadership who started as analysts, you’ll find none. Vastly underpaid... compared to similar buyside and sell side roles.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop blindly hiring average mbas to manage talented associates.

    « Still a good place to work »

    Point de vue positif

    Je travaille chez PIMCO à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    Despite the recent management changes over the past 2years, PIMCO is still a best in class place to work in Asset Management. Large scale, experienced and talented PMs and traders, and strong commitment (and hunger) to drive alpha for clients.

    Inconvénients

    After the Gross left the company lost a large part of its AUM and as a result has needed to reduce staff. The team was already lean but is now even leaner. However most of the changes have come from the non-PM team. It can also still be a very difficult environment to work in with senior PMs placing constant demand for ideas and to drive returns.

    Conseils à la direction

    After Gross left the culture of the firm was starting to change for the better. It's slowly starting to creep back to the old ways of a difficult work environment. It's OK to expect a great deal from your employees, but reflect on the manner in which you're doing it and be careful to not revert back to the old ways.

    Avantages

    Compensation is good once you get to the more senior levels. Portfolio managers are fairly competent, it's an academic environment.

    Inconvénients

    Overly intense culture, everyone takes themselves way too seriously - even when they're losing money.

    Conseils à la direction

    Leave California.

    Avantages

    Prestige name brand. open office

    Inconvénients

    Having to be at the office at 4am every day. Politics Difficult to move up unless you are really good at politics Not a performance based culture unless you are very senior Very stressful. long and unproductive hours. I could easily do my work in less than half the time, but I cant be seen leaving the office, even for lunch. have to whisper all the time and can't be seen smiling or joking for fear of looking... unproductive. very stressful and unnecessarily so. lot of posturing for airtime difficult to find another job post pimco which is why few people leave.

    Conseils à la direction

    change the culture of the trade floor back to how it was 20 years ago. try to make it into the meritocracy you tell interviewees and interns that it is.

    Avantages

    Brand reputation great. California is a decent location if you don't want the city life

    Inconvénients

    No place to go afterward that has upward mobility. This place really will suck your soul. Very hierchical. If you are in your 20s or early 30s, this is a horrible place to waste away your life. Don't be sucked in. The money/comp isnt as great as they make it out to be, or what you would expect from a firm like PIMCO

    Conseils à la direction

    Re-think your entire structure. The people at the top are amazing. But the hierarchy and the size have led to so many problems in the organization, that it has become a horrid place to work.

    « Terrible environment that good employees should avoid at all costs »

    ÉtoileÉtoileÉtoileÉtoileÉtoile
    Employé actuel - Portfolio Manager à New York, NY

    Je travaille chez PIMCO à temps plein

    Avantages

    The company has name recognition in the industry. It has created a sophisticated conveyer belt where job functions are highly specific creating a machine where nobody is required to think broadly, but the machine can run relatively smoothly nevertheless.

    Inconvénients

    I have come across some of the most morally corrupt people ever in this place. The culture is one of individualism at all costs. A large portion of employees are motivated solely by personal interests, at the expense of co-workers, subordinates and even clients. The business model includes hiring from outside at all costs rather than promoting from within. The growth of the firm is telegraphed to incoming... employees as being a huge opportunity to grow, however the marketing message associated with hiring from outside trumps all. "Look how strong we are - we are always hiring". Meanwhile that is made possible because of heavy turnover resulting from frustrated employees leaving. This firm really has become more of a marketing firm than a legitimate investment business.

    Dérouler

    Conseils à la direction

    Implement 360 degree reviews. Start treating employees with some respect. If the majorly negative undertones in the firm are not addressed, word will get out - and the line of clients and prospective new hires outside the door will begin to dwindle.
