    Long history of collaboration and caring deeply about customers

    Pace if decision making often slow, but efforts in place to help streamline

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose what's good, a lot of new managers aren't prepared for their roles and are feeding morale problems

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good but its relative because the pay is comparatively low to other companies in similar industries. For those who "fit", this is a great company to work for in an industry that is fairly stable. Management is tolerable but either hot or cold towards some employees based on whether they "fit" or not. Personal opinion weighs heavily in promotion so make as many friends as possible.

    Cons

    If you dont "fit" then there is little to no future for people who work here. If youre not interested in conforming to the politics and obvious favoritism this is not the place for you. Unless you have an appetite for azz kissing OR you just happen to know someone who is in a position where they can help you AND they "like" you, dont stay here too long just come here on your way to a real career. If you have lots of previous experience in a field such as Information Technology it pales in comparison to what can actually be done if the right person likes you.

    Advice to Management

    Pointless to advise mgmt. The company has been run the same way since the 1930s and they pride themselves on still following the same businesses practices that existed then.

    Pros

    Nice work environment, beautiful campus

    Cons

    Used to have a good work life balance, but there are a lot of changes occurring, which makes a lot of employees question management. As with most corporate America jobs, it's a lot of politics, thy either like you or don't. Compensation is still below other companies in the industry.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, great starter job, availability to hop departments and become licensed. Excellent training programs.

    Cons

    10 people in line to replace you. You are 100% replaceable. Salary is not competitive and merit increases are laughable.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation - this needs to be realistic

    Pros

    I worked here from 2008-2010 during the recession.

    If you could network well and avoid the politics, you did well. The firm was pretty stable. We didn't take as big a downsize hit during the recession compared to other finance firms. Plenty of opportunity for overtime pay.

    Cons

    Sometimes too much politics. If you aren't careful you can get type-casted in a negative way and your opportunities will be limiting.
