Private Client Senior Managing Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 9, 2016
AB is a great place to work, but moving up at the company is very politically driven. AB does not have the smartest employees, but the company culture is very good. AB strives be a Wall Street firm, but misses the mark on a number of fronts.

Comfortable working environment
Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 29, 2016
Some very smart people leading the firm. If you can interact with the leaders there is a chance to learn tons about the markets. Large size makes them a player and get involved in exciting parts of the market. good pay and great work/life balance.

Can be too friendly and political of an atmosphere and some under qualified people fill roles better suited for younger talent. Technology is inefficient and support for investment professionals is lacking at times.

Just OK
Coordinator, Private Client Services (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 27, 2016
Your time here greatly depends on what team you are placed on. Each FA acts as their own, independent company in many ways. I would recommend requesting that you meet your entire team before accepting the position.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
No room growth

Terrible middle management
Associate Vice President, Institutional Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 12, 2016
Poorly organized business which makes work balance and advancement difficult. Company performance has been challenged for a long time now so compensation has been poor regardless of personal performance.

One of the worst on the street

Go watch a group of 5 year olds play soccer - that is what a typical day is like at AB...including goalies playing in the dirt making dump truck sounds.
Pros
Being able to show up at 9 and leave at 4:30
Cons
Everything else

Great People, Great Projects
Associate Officer, Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 22, 2014
In general, the people here are what make this company great. The people I personally work with are very knowledgeable, professional, and were always willing to help.

Due to increasing project demands and limited resources, there is never a shortage of meaningful work. You will have many opportunities to further your skills and knowledge professionally, which is a plus.

However, sponsorship from management could be improved. Managers could do more to ensure that their best talent is properly awarded for their efforts to minimize turnover.

Benefits are standard.
Pros
Good work-life balance, subsidized company cafe, 401(k)

Productive and overall a great place to work
AVP of Pricing, Valuations (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 15, 2014
A typical day at work was very busy. I worked in multiple departments with AllianceBernstein and learned quite a bit about Legal, Compliance, and Audit. The hardest part of the job was ensuring that three separate locations met Service Level Agreements. The most enjoyable part was coaching the staff on how to meet all of the expectations.
Pros
Learned quite a bit about Mutual Funds
