Risk Analyst, Boston, MA - February 17, 2017
Pioneer Investments was an excellent place to learn about the investments and securities industry for a beginner like me. It was a very business-casual environment and the other employees were very open and welcoming. As a risk analyst, I was trained at Pioneer to use programs like Barclay's POINT, Blackrock's Aladdin, and Bloomberg to compile reports to help monitor the day-to-day risk measurements of various portfolios. While I officially worked under Fixed-Income risk, I was also given the opportunity to work closely with Performance and Counter-Party Risk. Being new to this environment and industry, the learning curve proved to be steep at first but it was also very enjoyable: there were always things to learn and questions to ask. My managers were more than happy to provide feedback and my coworkers were very eager to answer numerous questions.
