Great workplace with young employees
Fund Accounting Consultant (Current Employee), Boston, MAMarch 1, 2014
Pros: longer lunch breaks, friendly atmosphere, coworkers are all in the same age group
Cons: odd hours (11 am to 7 pm)
Everyone in the office is willing and happy to help everyone out if and when they need it. Being with the group of people for close to 50 hours a week, we learn to joke around with each other, and make the last few, extremely stressful hours of the work day more enjoyable. The coworkers are very friendly, great to be around, and are always there for – more... help and encouragement. The hardest part of the job would most likely be the end of the night when deadlines approach. Although we always meet client deadlines, the process and approach of getting there tends to be a stressful roller coaster ride. – less

Company of cut throat management
AVP (Current Employee), BostonNovember 30, 2013
Pros: you may be able to learn some things here.
Cons: poor guidance, architects laid off, vendor products brought in.
In regards to the Systems department, you may be able to learn some things here but it's mostly maintaining systems that were created without any common architecter, unless you are on the mainframe. Management constantly changes and there is poor leadership and vision for distributed systems. Some area's are using old vendor products that were poorly – more... chosen.
Many long term, very knowledgable staff laid off after a systems office opened in Poland. – less

Not what they used to be
Client Service Group (CSG) Fund Accounting (Former Employee), Boston, MASeptember 17, 2013
Pros: good name recognition
Cons: started to feel like a number
For the first few years BBH was a good company to work at. Although there was little concern for your work life balance the company was stable and you felt some level of security. In the past few years I was there the culture changed as they began to outsource more and really had little regard for the individual.
