    I have been working at JP Turner & Company (more than an year)

    Pros

    Always Hiring
    A few accomplished and knowledgeable brokers you can learn from
    Competition between "teams" can be helpful
    Fast paced environment

    Cons

    College graduates are paid approximately 20% less than the industry average, cost of living adjustments factored in
    Unprofessional work environment and culture.
    No standard training, "skills" learned are specific to the branch and their outdated technology and are not transferable.
    High turnover rate amongst employees that have other options, those who do not have other career options stay.
    Controlling and manipulative environment.
    Once a month work Saturdays are mandatory and are usually a waste of time, not paid for time.
    Working lunches, cannot leave the premises. Have to pay a monthly fee regardless of whether you actually use the kitchen or not. Revenue stream from employees.
    Has a bad reputation with students at The University of South Carolina students with good reason.
    Very cliquey environment rampant with office politics and gossip.
    Arguments, crying, yelling among advisors, staff, and between advisors and staff are the norm.
    Owner requires that personal cell phones are kept in his office, cannot leave in your car.
    Owner and Senior Management are good at what they do but they debase themselves with the extraneous and unnecessary activities in the office some of them partake in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a more professional and comfortable work environment and retain employees by:
    -Doing away with the "No matter what the situation, I will always pick the broker because they make me the money" (paraphrase) attitude. it is divisive and encourages and fosters bad behavior.
    -Do not tolerate office politics and gossip from any level of the organization
    -Establish an HR department or person that is separate from the day to day operations of the business
    -Ensure that the personal unpaid time employees spend at work Saturdays are always productive.
    -Listen to the more levelheaded and conflict averse advisors and/or take their advice.
    -Try create a more positive, productive and enriching work environment.
    -Communicate effectively, instead of senior management whispering behind closed doors engage employees directly and work together to find solutions.
    -Do not allow veterans in the organization to use their tenure to treat other employees badly
    -Use the way the broker dealers corporate office is ran as a template.
    -Support staff is also important to the success of the business, treat them accordingly.
