    Complete Garbage Company........Countdown To Bankruptcy After Thomas Weisel Partners "Merger"

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsGreat people (excluding management)
    Great work/life balance
    Minimal interference from above

    ConsTerrible compensation package (far below industry average)
    Poor benefits
    Worst technology of any company I've worked
    Ego-driven CEO that makes senseless value destroying acquisitions
    Must be "in" with management to move forward
    Cheap to the point where quality is sacrificed
    Management does not invest anything in its people

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut the ego aside and focus on your shareholders
    Invest in your people
    Get better technology
    Increase compensation

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Looking for growth? Not here.

    Register Client Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsThe home office support is wonderful however it appears that some department are limited in hiring more support to meet the growing firm.

    ConsThe particular branch have trouble communicating and does not exude acceptable management behavior. There is little effort in providing a positive atmosphere in the work environment. There nothing done to improve employee satisfaction and retention. I believe there power struggle being a decentralized firm without the proper training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore training among employees and management. Make sure to disclose all rules and commission rates to not only the financial advisers but to the support branch team as well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ProsNice co-workers
    Nice expense account

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
