    Excellent benefits, problematic career mapping

    Data Analyst (Former Employee)
    Radnor, PA

    ProsExcellent benefits include their 401k match, HSA medical option, tele-commuting, max contribution to education, really friendly and helpful environment (I've been told it's the nicest place to work from employees coming from other companies), plus annual bonus for non-sales positions.

    ConsQuite low employee turnover so career advancement can be frustrating and high probability of doing 2+ jobs at the same time. No mentoring system in place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLots of talk about career mapping for years, but never implemented. I also suggest a mentoring and/or internship for current employees, not just for new graduates coming in via LDP.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great benefits, great people, not much room for advancement in some areas

    Finance Area (Current Employee)
    Fort Wayne, IN

    ProsThey try to make work fun
    Great benefits package-insurance choices, 401k match, time off
    Flexible work schedules
    Lots of different areas to move around to
    Overall, I trust managemetn

    ConsIn some areas, it's hard to move up
    Lots of reorgs and uncertainty
    Some who have worked there a long time seem jaded or that they are "untouchable" and don't do much work

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think we are on the right track. Continue to be as transparant as possible.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting, but not too rewarding

    Investment Analyst (Former Employee)
    Canonsburg, PA

    ProsGet to learn a lot about different investment vehicles. Management takes your advice if you prove you know what you're talking about.

    ConsNot much room for promotion. Management can look down upon you if you don't have too much prior investment analysis experience at prior jobs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great company to grow in

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsRespect for employees,
    High level of responsibility
    Honest feedback
    Leadership training
    Opportunities for growth
    Expect to be challenged
    Work-life balance
    Great benefits
    Provides good customer value

    ConsChanging rapidly
    Mergers and layoffs create uncertainty and anxiety
    Politics at the senior level is becoming a problem
    Customer service expectations do require a lot of effort
    Major changes require working on current and future products

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to believe in your employees. The company is changing and expectations continue to increase, but remember it is the employees that have gotten you to your level of success. This is not the time to reduce their benefits and training. Give your employees a break, especially those that have sacrificed personal time to keep your projects on track.
