Poor Leadership
Vice President, Corporate Solutions (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 16, 2017
There are many "Bosses" in the organization and very few leaders. Competency and hard work are not rewarded. And opinions and different ideas are not valued.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Poor leadership

Forward looking, advanced, serious
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 24, 2016
I am honored to be a part of the Guggenheim brand, however, in the less than 2 years I have been here there have been 3 or 4 RIFs. Morale is very low. Career advancement is non-existent.

There are signs that things may turn around as far as employee satisfaction, but until then there is still much to do.
Pros
Free snacks
Cons
low morale

Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 12, 2016
Because these managers have no experience, they have unrealistic expectations of their employees. This sets people up for failure and creates a terrible work environment. I (and others) learned the hard way that you can't trust anything management says. I never knew where I stood and I suffered anxiety attacks on a regular basis. HR is not helpful.

Good work environment
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IADecember 4, 2014
Good work environment and great people to work with.
Opportunity to grow horizontally as they have multiple different businesses. A little improvement from Higher management would be some level of transparency and understanding and paying attention to employee needs.
