    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    401k match, front line employees want to do what is best for the clients.

    Cons

    With most leadership coming from Wells Fargo and Bank of America so the sales model is turning towards those companies. Severe micromanaging now. Needless widgets are being tracked that do not increase productivity or profitably

    Advice to Management

    Don't follow the leadership of the big, giant, mega banks.
