Favorite job, would still be there if company was not sold.
Sr. Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 24, 2013
One of the best positions I have had in my 23 years experience as an Executive Assistant. Worked for 9 personality diverse managers who I have yet to come across since. Autonomous position as they each traveled approximately 75% of the time.
I learned exceptional organization, computer, client service, travel arranging, meeting/event coordinating skills as well as patience and understanding of specific needs per person.
The hardest part of the job was leaving. The company was sold by Marsh and Mac to Great West and our department was dissolved.
Managers were supportive and great to work for/with
Analyst (Current Employee) – Andover, MA – January 22, 2017
Excellent work life balance (four weeks vacation plus floating holidays!) and benefits, but can be highly political depending on the group. Seems arbitrary who is promoted, not necessarily based on merit or experience. Lower salaries but compensated with benefits and work from home opportunities.
Administrative Assistant / Fixed Income (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – November 22, 2016
I love working among so many talented individuals but unfortunately there are many cons. Putnam extremely underpays their staff; there is zero work/life balance; there is no room for growth to further your career.
Excellent company all around with a team cafeteria and dining

I was in a call center tier 1. I learned a lot by taking all different types of calls. People were nice and management was cool. I did not like having to wear a tie all day. I liked troubleshooting over the phone

Account Associate via Xerox (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 19, 2013
I was working at Putnam Investments as a contractor for 4 yearsI worked in the document center as a contractor through Xerox Large corporation, a very nice place to work if you are dedicated and not lazy. They require consistency and commitment.They give you a lot of experiance and let you learn first how things should be done. Its great if you are just starting out your career.
Xerox has several clusters of very talented people, and under the right managers employees gain good growth opportunities.
Lots of downsizing, don't expect annual salary increases, they've shipped a lot of jobs overseas.

my day started with reading the mail processing the checks after the checks were bagged they went to the scanner to be scanned which I did occasionally and then they were pulled in the check room and sent out to the bank by courier.
Management does an excellent job helping every employee feel comfortable and there is great opportunity for advancement.
Processor and Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Andover, MA – September 24, 2012
I very much enjoyed working at Putnam all of the management goes above and beyond to assist you with any questions or problems so that you can be sure that everything you are processing is done correctly the first time. I learned to slow down and ask questions if you're not 100% sure on something, and by learning this through my peers I excelled at my work and took great pride in the work I did, and was very proud to have worked at this amazing company. Everyone was very friendly both management and my co-workers there was never a day that I did not look forward to going to work. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting awards for a job well done because it is a great feeling to be recognized for all my hard work. They only hard part of the job would be trying to network myself with my co-workers and upper management because I was not in the office very often since I worked at home. But with all of that said working at Putnam was by far the greatest job so far in my professional career.
great facility; including the lunch area and the food they served. and pot lucks.

Good entry level work. Lot of knowledge is expected. Management is alright. Job depends on which manager you have. Co-workers are young and also interns. Career advancement opportunity are there but it depends on the manager again. Very micro-managed and analytic .
