Brandes Investment Partners is the finest company I have ever worked for. This company not only cared about their clients, but they cared about their employees as well. The enviroment was good, a clean and up to date company and an Open Door policy to even upper management. Regular bonuses and pay raises were given out yearly, according to the company – more... profit. Everyone worked together well, and if their was a confict, it would be settled. The hardest part of my job was saying goodbye after 15 years. When you had a personal problem, you had a lot of people standing behind you. It was like an extended family. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people. I learned about the financial wold, and how to use a computer. A typical day at work, was coming in at 6:20am, starting the coffee for out guests, picking up voice mail, checking e-mails and start answering the phones at 6:30am. I answered up to 1200 calls a day, greeting guests form all over the world, I kept the company phone directory up to date, as well as the directory for my Department on Excel Spreadsheets. I helped with other clerical duties for my Department and my direct Supervisor. I also kept track of the conference room scheduling, and well as resolving. problems when 2 people wanted the same room. I also helped set up and take down for Due Diligence meetings. – less
