    I have been working at Convergex Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are allowed to solve problems with your own solutions. Not much micro-management or red tape. New technology is considered, there aren't the typical road blocks to new Infrastructure or tools that you would get in a bank setting. You can work remote, from home.

    Cons

    The transfer from the old management to new management is still in transition. High pressure, stressful at times. The long term strategy is still in flux.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on track with your re-shaping of the company vision and transparency.

    summer intern

    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern
    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I worked at Convergex Group as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Get hand-on experience. As an intern, you need to do the presentation to senior management. A lot of coding. Marketable skills. Coffee is good.

    Cons

    Independent working environment. Not a lot of resources. Coworkers are busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should know more about their employees.

    Pros

    great pay

    Cons

    Their are too many vice presidents its hard to follow the chain of command
    Back office workers have almost no interaction with front office
    Intern program has issues- leave you in one department as opposed to moving you around and getting different experience

    I have been working at Convergex Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual office and friendly coworkers however this is the only benefit. In better years the bonus was okay.

    Cons

    Convergex is not on very solid ground because of legal matters facing the company. This and other factors like low compensation has caused high turn over and loss of knowledge. This makes working there challenging. Also they have poor practices when it comes to promotions often times not telling any employees about openings.
