    Financial/Investment Analyst Intern

    Former Employee - Financial/Investment Analyst in San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Financial/Investment Analyst in San Diego, CA

    I worked at The Retirement Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was a Financial/Investment Analyst intern at TRG last quarter of 2013. Some of the pros of working at this firm are:
    -Very practical and hands on. As an intern you will not be getting coffee for the higher ups and stapling their paper work. You will work with actual client portfolios, perform cashflow analysis and asset allocation.
    -Develop professional relationships with Brokers and other Associates within the firm.
    -Learn about portfolio management, research and legal document interpretation.
    -Great support from fellow Interns as well as from management.
    -You will take on a role of a Financial Analyst, Research Analyst, Investment Analyst ... etc. extremely diverse an a well rounded program.

    I am glad I had a chance to learn and work at The Retirement Group. The knowledge I gained here has opened up a lot of doors for me.

    on a side note, all the negative comments are most likely from individuals who do not posses the work ethic required to succeed in this industry.

    -Yuriy C

    Cons

    No real cons. A lot of work, but that's not really a con.... rather an opportunity to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing your interns like you have been doing, It creates strong work ethic.
