    Pros

    set schedule, lovely office, comfortable culture, great benefits

    Cons

    low wage scale, declining net retail business due to market and aging clientele

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide if we're going to be a solely a boutique international and institutional firm, and kill the retail business. Or aggressively go after new retail business and up the compensation for employees to make it worth their while to get new business.
