    I worked at Zacks Investment Research full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are some good people brought in to keep a ship with a lot of holes in it afloat. Very hard working vibes, but the "feeling" can only carry you so long where most people don't last longer than 2 years and move on to bigger and better things.

    Cons

    Many under qualified people leading teams, especially the IT department, where they have no game plan and work is more about fixing fires than growing the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not continue to keep the "play with the hand your dealt with" attitude and hire some quality leadership and staff. Replace the heads of the IT department.
