Pros

The management in my department are very good and knowledgeable about what they do. They are open to questions.

Cons

Brokers rule this company and have very little reguard for company rules and GAAP (which as a publicly traded company is essential). Management does nothing to rein them in and then expects everyone else to jump through all these hoops in order to meet their unreasonable demands. The Brokers are also very unprofessional in how they interact and communicate with others within the company--but again, management wants us to overlook these things as they RULE. It is very hard to get a block of time off for holidays and you are actually expected to work most MAJOR holidays that other Fortune 500 companies grant to their employees. The culture of my department is the only thing that gives me a ray of hope but this company gets old fast!

    Pros

    The company provides a lot of opportunities to help advance your career through training including providing time during work hours. Often its paid (reimbursed) or free through their association memberships.

    Cons

    Management is in general 'out to lunch' - Too many bureaucratic 'red tape' CYA requirements. It makes doing your daily tasks more work than it should be - no added value to anyone. These changes happen continuosly throughout the year and always negatively impact the workload of their employees. Staffing standards never appear to take these added steps into account thus making a managable job less and less as time goes on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bottom line is important - make good on company speak and take care of all the non-management staff - they are the ones that are doing all of the work!
