    Pros

    Growing company with many opportunities to utilize more than one skill-set.

    Ample opportunity to contribute and have meaningful impact on the business.

    High-value is placed on professional development. Continuing education and attainment of professional designations is encouraged and supported.

    Employees are kept informed of important business decisions and the reasoning behind them.

    Relatively few layers of management to navigate.

    Privately owned and operated by the original founder, an effective leader with good moral character and strong values.

    Cons

    Low 401k match (3% max)

    Frequent turnover alarming to new employees.

    Key business processes frequently undocumented.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing the 401k match to 6% to remain competitive with nearby financial service firms (i.e. Charles Schwab, Fidelity, and TD Ameritrade ).

    Pros

    There are some extremely knowledgeable people in this organization who you can learn a lot from.

    Cons

    Favoritism, rumors and misinformation is how this company is run. Lack of vision of the future means resources are spread too thin and always jumping from crisis to crisis.

    Advice to Management

    Lead through inspiring not fear. Have faith and trust in your employees and don't always second guess them.
