Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  White Plains, NYAugust 4, 2017
White Plains office is a great location for those who don't want to go into the city. My boss is very good about work from home if there is ever a time I can't make it in

Standard Finance Firm
Request for Proposal (RFP) Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 22, 2017
AllianceBernstein is your run of the mill asset management / fiduciary firm. If you're into or have a passion for financial services, AB is a decent place to develop your career.

Great place to start your career
Corporate Actions Associate (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXDecember 25, 2016
AB is a great place to start your career, however, there is little room for growth once you have been there for over two years. The majority of it's employees are either Associates or VP's. There is literally nothing in between.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Lack of growth opportunities and compensation

Productive & Amazing People
Senior Managing Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 18, 2016
"The most valuable assets at the firm go up and down the elevator each day." The firm is certainly filled with the industry's best and brightest individuals, and it is truly the people that are one of the most enjoyable aspects of each and every day. No day is ever the same in the financial services industry as the market can impact all aspects of the job almost instantly. This can quickly wrench the work-life balance and lead to late evenings or weekend hours to assure all projects are successfully completed, but it is certainly nice to be surrounded by great people while doing so.

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

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.
