The original FinTech & RIA Specialist & Consultant - Five Star Brilliance
Regional Director (Former Employee) – Oaks, PA – May 6, 2018
SEI is hands down the best in the industry for RIA practice management and truly understanding the critical importance of supporting the Advisor's value proposition. They are the original and best at digging into the concept of Outsourcing in my humble opinion. I learned so much from my Managing Director, Jim Ward, in my time there; however, the greater "Management" was not as hands-on due to the size and structure of the firm, which is why I gave the number of stars I did on that question. There was surely not work-life balance in my experience as we all worked tremendously hard with vigor and never looked at a clock. It is a wonderful firm full of bright thinkers doing only positive things and leaning into new areas of technology, investment sectors and research but all the while keeping people at the forefront and remembering that Advisors will lead the way versus AI. SEI is a fabulous company I cannot say enough great things about.

Private Equity Fund Accounting Analyst (Current Employee) – Oaks, PA – March 12, 2018
The company has many benefits and has many opportunities but specifically the private equity fund accounting department is understaffed. Due to that people are overworked, underpaid, and managers under value employees.
Sales Development Manager (Former Employee) – Oaks, PA – March 1, 2018
Loved the culture at SEI. It's not for everyone as it's an open concept floor plan. Many perks, such as stock options, 3 weeks vacation to start (that was 12 years ago - may have changed), awesome cafeteria (many stations to choose from and decent pricing). Great people.
Mutual Fund Accountant (Current Employee) – Oaks, PA – February 27, 2018
A typical work day is fast paced and full of many tasks that need to be completed at a certain deadline. Not much free time which is a good thing. Many opportunities to learn all the ins and outs of your field.
Great work environment where coworkers are willing to teach you
Analyst (Former Employee) – Oaks, PA – February 27, 2018
The culture at SEI is fun and unexpected. It is very unusual to have one of the largest individual art collections on display in you office. It makes for an incredible atmosphere and creative place to work.
Fund Accounting Supervisor (Current Employee) – Oaks, OK – February 8, 2018
The work my department does is mostly daily-deliverable. This creates a fast-paced work environment that keeps everyone busy and working hard. Management has done a fair job at allocating work that lends to each supervisors strengths and also challenges them.
Hour for lunch, open-forum work evironment (no cubicles)
Operations Analyst (Current Employee) – Oaks, PA – January 11, 2018
culture is amazing. Do you think an organization should view all ideas as equally valid? Should the company's bottom line be the only mechanism that determines what idea is utilized? For example, employees in a company have an idea that the cafeteria should should accept credit cards to reduce traffic. This will cost the company money. It may not dramatically increase the bottom-line. However, one can argue that less traffic means employees will have more time eating than waiting in line. If employees are able to finish food earlier, they may be able to return to work earlier. Also, employees may become more grateful that they're able to finish their food without the long wait, therefore, causing them to perform better. What are your thoughts on this scenario or any scenario that is not causing increase to the bottom-line?
Account Benefits Manager (Former Employee) – Oaks, PA – December 26, 2017
They hire under the premise that they want someone with experience then ignore their experience to promote recent graduates. Then they treat the experienced people as old and oblivious. So why hire the experience to ignore them.
Productive and good place to learn evolving technologies
Senior Java Developer (Current Employee) – Malvern, PA – December 3, 2017
It follows Agile Methodology and learned to deliver things in a particular period of time, proper planning in advance, dealing with dependency on other teams etc. Directly involved in demo to stake holders as we had opportunity to exhibit what we developed in a Sprint. Overall nice place to learn new technologies , web services etc.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Oaks, PA – November 21, 2017
Enjoyed my time at this company. Unfortunately with the spiraling economy at the time, there were many job cuts. Your horizons were unlimited - the focus was creativity, thinking outside the box - even for the most mundane type of role. The environment could be hectic/stressful at times (deadlines, etc), but the overall culture was pleasant.
Location, rewards for jobs well done, interaction with all levels of employee/management was encouraged
Open culture (no walls, structure) at times did allow for the slackers to excel
