Overall Ranking (48%)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

The Overall Ranking is generated based on the Company Reviews.

Company Details

Iridian Asset Management LLC (Iridian) is an independently-owned investment management firm, focused exclusively on managing active investment strategies primarily for institutional investors including foundations and endowments, corporate and public pension funds and Taft Hartley funds. As of 6/30/12, we managed $7.2 billion in U.S. mid-cap, large-cap and small-cap equity investment strategies on behalf of clients.

Iridian was founded in 1996 by David Cohen and Harold Levy, two skilled investment professionals who have worked side-by-side in the investment industry for over 20 years, and have more than 60 years' combined investment experience. Our unique "private business value" approach to investing, which drives our mid-cap and large-cap strategies, has its roots in our founders' early investment careers, which encompassed direct experience in private equity, venture capital, distressed debt and bankruptcy takeovers. In analyzing investment opportunities, our founders learned the importance of focusing on cash-related metrics and in-depth, critical assessment of a company's management -- two key factors that have been fundamental in shaping their shared and distinctive investment philosophy.
