    Stimmt gegen Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei PFM gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Good exposure to the financial world. Learn many transferable skills on the job. Allows you to build a network. Many great meaning people are willing to help you learn. can be a fun and comfortable environment.

    Kontras

    Top management is very frugal and old fashioned, mostly concerned with finding ways to cut costs and increasing profits without regard to lower level employees. Extremely high turnover as a result; estimate roughly 80% of new hires leave after two years. Career advancement is very arcane; vague feedback is given to employees creating a very confusing promotion system. Would not recommend staying longer than two... years.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop being so cheap. Recognize and reward talent when you have it versus constantly training replacement analysts

    Pros

    Analyst Training Program is not bad.

    Kontras

    OPINION: Poor investment decisions, spending on pointless MD retreats, and an obsession with cross selling made by heads of firm are adversely affecting its values & culture in the past few years. This will surely hurt any future recruitment and retention efforts, and ultimately, the firm's bottom line. Certain branch offices have a hard time holding on to analysts for than a few years. The muni bond market also... took a hit in volume after Trump's Tax reform and will continue to do so especially if private activity bonds become taxable in the coming years.

    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Anonymer Mitarbeiter 

    Ich arbeite bei PFM (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Excellent place to start career. The training program was immersive, detailed, and thorough. Management is patient and always looking to move analysts into deals.

    Kontras

    Compensation could be a little higher.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, but it was implemented with less than 60 days notice to current employees, so everyone lost the vacation days they had saved up without receiving payouts. Implemented Dec 2017, but the notice to current employees came out in the 2nd week of Nov 2017 and many Managing Directors across the firm rejected employee's requests for PTO before Dec 1.

    Kontras

    The quality of the consulting product is questionable. Certain consultants produce a predetermined narrative for clients regardless of what the actual data shows. There is a specific project manager who creates an extremely hostile work environment for all the women in MBC, people of color, and gay men. He takes credit for others' work and got promoted meanwhile half a dozen people who have done work for him have... been fired or left the firm in the last 3 years. There are numerous managers who focus only on bringing in business and then harass analysts and less tenured consultants to do all the work and blame them if the slightest thing goes wrong. There have not been substantial or robust quality controls process put in place after a recent Washington Post article identified a major mistake that PFM made for a county government client. The managing directors play favorites with certain project managers and analysts and allow certain employees to leave early while requiring everybody else to stay from 9AM to 6PM (or sometimes later!). MBC demands long hours and there are stretches of weeks where you will work multiple hours during late nights and weekends. The compensation is well below peer consulting groups. The Human Resources at PFM is a joke -- they don't know what's going on with any of the managing directors or directors and they can barely handle compensation, benefits, and recruiting. MBC pretends to be a group of professionals who treat everyone fairly and kindly, but the reality is that they are nice to your face and then denigrate you behind closed doors. The open office layout does not foster collaboration--you can go an entire business day and speak to no one. You have no privacy and for someone as experienced as I was, it was embarrassing to have a desk and computer screen that faces senior management. PFM as a whole is very top heavy, but MBC is ridiculous because there are more than 2 managers for every 1 analyst. The result is consultants and project managers end up doing analyst level work.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop firing everybody like we saw in 2017 and 2018. Stop lying to employees that you focus on career development and offering opportunities for advancement when you don't. Stop treating women, people of color, and gay employees like they are inferior to the old boys club. Stop spending lavishly on updated buildings, worthless branding campaigns and hired models for the PFM website. Stop with the sport events/golfing... with clients. Stop playing favorites and stop working people 60 hours a week on a regular basis while paying well below market rate. Stop ignoring the negative reviews -- PFM is NOT one of Philadelphia's best places to work. There are so many employees that have left in less than two years. HR claims to read these reviews and feedback from other annual surveys, but they are incapable or unwilling to make significant improvements.

    Pros

    It was an easy commute to work.

    Kontras

    HR favors employees with more tenure and do not address or correct employees with serious issues. Pay is poor. Work is boring.
