Good for a short assignment, but not a career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Zacks Investment Research

ProsGreat location, reasonable work life balance, monthly bonus based on company performance, few meetings and no bureaucracy

ConsTerrible benefits: no 401k match, expensive insurance, little time off or flexibility; constant technology issues; abrasive and demeaning culture

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more vacation time or allow people to negotiate for more; encourage teamwork

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Zacks review

Research Intern (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Zacks Investment Research as an intern for less than a year

ProsGood training ground for an entry analyst, while still in undergrad
Many opportunities to apply academic skills and test in real life experiences
Also, would not take this as a full time job unless you are really into researching
I am looking to be a trader, and it's great to pick up on some research skills, they offer many products for institutional investors

ConsNot as open communication as desirable, between different sectors and framing a big picture of the market, even if on a weekly basis

Advice to Senior ManagementConnect all different sectors and synthesize info from each sector
Management can also be more helpful in terms of framework of researching
First couple of weeks could have been a lot easier in transitioning if a basic framework was recommended

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

pretty good

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Zacks Investment Research

Prosfriendly place to work at mos of the times. it's a good combination of corporate(mid sized company) and family business (privately owned).

Consthe management doesn't treat you with respect unless they are your peers or above their level. they are very cheap. i heard that one time, before i joined, the admin team came by each station/desk and collected all the post its not being used.

Advice to Senior Managementstop treating your subordinates like pawns and bring more respect to the table. show more concern about who work for you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
