    Inconvénients

    -Some very big personalities at the senior/managerial ranks. They're very smart, but they can be a little bit too aware of that fact. -If you're looking for frequent detailed feedback, look elsewhere.

    Je travaille chez Marshall Wace North America à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    Exciting and challenging work, smart/driven employees, collaborative/down-to-earth environment, innovation is promoted, spends on tech, spends on personal development coaching, focus on employee welfare and happiness (especially office perks), pay is competitive and benefits are great, management encourages a good work/life balance.

    Inconvénients

    Flat(ish) and lean structure means you have to be OK with a more indefinite career trajectory although they have shown dedication to promoting across teams. A few out-sized personalities.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to hire the right people, and ensure managers are properly trained to align their leadership approach in a way that matches the goals and perspective of the company.

    Avantages

    The office is beautiful and the benefits are some of the best i've ever had. If you work hard you are rewarded well & the IT systems/support is second to none

    Inconvénients

    Senior management... they're highly strung, condescending, rude and they will treat you like you're something they stepped in.

    Conseils à la direction

    None. They won't change as they make money & think that's all that matters.

    They promote from within, everyone who works there is bright but with little ego, they are working on cutting edge research, growing AUM, opportunities to work in London office , beautiful new NYC office

    Inconvénients

    No whiteboards, they are 20 years old so if you are looking to join a firm that is more of a start up then this is not for you

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to promote from within

    Avantages

    Marshall Wace is a great place to learn fresh out of university, also generally early on in one's career. The setup is very collaborative and one can learn a lot quickly.

    Inconvénients

    The firm relies rather heavily on the quant strategies for its bottom line, but there is generally little appreciation of quants by the senior management. I got the impression quant was seen as a sort of backwater. It compliments the main business but is not considered on par with the other front office teams. Maybe it's changed since but likely not. In a sense that is expected, given the firm's DNA is essentially... in non-quant and fundamental investing. That is what has helped them grow into one of the most successful hedge funds at the moment. It is mushroom management a bit though. It's more keep your head down and keep producing good research. This setup has probably contributed to the large number of departures from the quant teams of people with up to around 3 or 5 years of experience. Normally over 80% of team comprise of graduates and people with a few years of experience. Beyond that level people generally move on elsewhere. I got the impression that management weren't particularly bothered by this situation. The churn is sort of factored into their hiring decisions. Like I said earlier though, it is a great place to be early on in one's career. As long as you approach it as such you are unlikely to be disappointed. The quality of people that work there is very high. I definitely do not regret the years I spent there.

    Avantages

    Very nice office, free meals. Big firm with good resources.

    Inconvénients

    Zero concern for analysts. Lousy pay. Recruiters exaggerate bonus potential during hiring process without disclosing unfavourable deferred comp structure. Analysts get fired on a whim. Partners and PMs hoard most of the profit and throw chump change to analysts. Management could care less about developing analysts.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop treating analysts like commodities and cost centers

    Avantages

    Firm was growing in assets. Employees were friendly.

    Inconvénients

    Five star reviews not accurate, likely written by HR. They sell you hard on the firm upfront when you get an offer and claim turnover is very low with upward mobility. In reality analysts get fired arbitrarily without warning for non-performance related reasons. Very political place with fiefdoms all around. Promotions and job stability based on playing political games and not merit. The firm is cheap and... underspends on resources. Most analysts are underpaid. They do not give analysts laptops and mobile devices. Management in US does not understand how to run the fundamentals fund side of business.

    Avantages

    The culture is great-- really entrepreneurial with hardworking and bright staff. The office is beautiful too. With regard to the intern program I think they've done a wonderful job granting interns access to senior members of the firm. Honestly the whole office was quite welcoming to interns and wanted to make themselves available for questions, coffee chats, etc. A lot will be expected of you at the firm, but you... will also be able to learn a lot in return.

    Dérouler

    Inconvénients

    The flat hierarchy of the firm may be a deterrent for some looking for a lot of upward growth within a company, although that does not really impact interns or those joining at entry level. Some may not like the relatively early start time and limited WFO flexibility.

    Conseils à la direction

    No advice to management really. The company has been hanging a lot over recent years due to headcount expansion and office relocation. The culture that Paul Marshall and Ian Wace have created is really unique and valuable to the firm, so make sure that's kept in tact as you continue to evolve. And perhaps create some opportunity for promotion or career growth within certain Middle/Back office roles.
