Managers Are Lost

Associate (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsLarge company, good colleagues, flexible hours are some of the qualities that make this place a great place to work.

ConsManagers who don't even belong in the same office or even in the same line of business stick their noses where it doesn't belong, shift people to what they want to see them at and when the associates say something about it, managers ignore (especially if you are not a high revenue producer). So in other words, if you are a broker who makes lots of money for them, you can get away with almost anything. Literally. However, if you don't make revenue for them, managers will disregard you. There's one exception to this: if you become a favorite of the right manager (so not all managers fall into this category), you will be taken care of. But be careful, get on the wrong side of the same manager, and they will take you down. Yes, it's a HR lawsuit waiting to happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet educated about the line of business. One cannot be in charge of everything and do a good job of it. Also, just because you change titles doesn't mean it makes you a manager.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
