Under pressure
Field Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 15, 2017
Active mutual fund management is under pressure from passive management and this pressure is pushing into the office.

The CTO is outsourcing as much as he can.
Pros
Compensation, benefits, people
Cons
Job security, job opportunities

Productive and interesting
Scheduler (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 8, 2017
Worked from home. Flexible hours. 5 hours a day. I learned how to manage financial advisor calendars for the week and month. Hardest part of the job as making sure I got in contact with their clients who didn't return calls. The most enjoyable part was communicating with different kinds of clients in different areas of the world.
Pros
Bonus at end of year
Cons
Not a secure position in that field as a sheduler. Financial advisors come and go.

Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Englewood, CODecember 15, 2016
Because of the variety of jobs I held (supervisor, assistant supervisor, trainer and administrative assistant) it would be difficult to portray a typical day. Worked in about 7 different departments whose functions were varied from each other. Toward the end of my career there, a call-center mind set was being imposed on payment processing areas which caused concern for many employees.
Pros
Good benefits, hardworking employees
Cons
Taking a "one-size-fits-all" attitude for all work processes

Good place for work/life balance.
Digital Product Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 21, 2016
OppenheimerFunds is a great place to work if you want to take home a steady paycheck and a good bonus for 9 to 5 work.

Middle management lacks empowerment and outside experience. Some hangover from top-down management style that persists, making it difficult to try new things and experiment with new ideas or process.
Pros
Good colleagues, great healthcare and benefits
Cons
Not risk takers, difficult to experiment and improve.

Generally a great place to work unitl recently.
Unix Software enginner (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COSeptember 30, 2016
Was always a great place until just recently. No one speaks up for you and management is only thinking of themselves.

Not a comfortable place to work anymore.
Pros
Benefits, people, family first until recently
Cons
Lack of management, too much work, held a different standard from other departments in company

Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COSeptember 15, 2016
OppenheimerFunds is a great company to work for. They offer a great benefits package.
The management team in Accounts Payable is horrendous. Very unprofessional. Everything is personal. The managers couldn't train anyone on regular day-to-day processes because they don't have the experience working with the systems they use.
Everyone is replaceable, and they make sure to remind their staff regularly.
The department needs a thorough restructure.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Department-level management struggling

Little room for advancement
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 28, 2016
Technology is heading the way of outsourcing jobs to india, while leadership is at the same time making a big push towards 'recruiting top talent' in technology. Perhaps first they should look at keeping existing top talent happy before working on the other two conflicting goals.
Pros
Very flexible work/life balance
Cons
Future of actively managed mutual funds is not looking bright.

Frustrating and exhausting.
Correspondent II (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COJune 27, 2015
Nearly everyday is burnout busy. Employees are not valued or treated well unless they are the chosen ones. Management is cliquey and mostly women due to low-paying salaries. My coworkers were mostly under appreciated and overworked. The hardest part of the job was attempting to know everything and keep up on information - information overload. The most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunity to work from home. Poor management and horrible communication really undermines this company.
Pros
Work from home program is available.
Cons
Managing employees out is common practice.

Leader in Development (Current Employee) –  Denver, COApril 25, 2013
I have enjoyed my time at OppenheimerFunds and think it is a good company with a lot of opportunity for growth. It has a call center environment so very micromanaged.
