Pros

Great benefits (medical, vacation, perks), Work life balance GREAT people to work with (on a personal level, see Cons for professional level) Supervisors acknowledge hard workers - the ones who come early or stay late when needed. If you're a person who enjoys assisting, keeping busy, and staying organized - you'll enjoy this job.

Cons

Supervisors are too busy to notice or reprimand slackers. Some individuals are more eager and willing to assist than others. There are those who don't do everything they're supposed to do, but are never written up for not completing their work. They spend their day playing Facebook games or using paid hours to do non work related tasks, and don't get their assigned tasks completed. Those same individuals often come late, and leave "on time". If you are a person who likes to stay busy, you must ask for more work.

Advice to Management

Show your team that everyone is treated fairly, and that someone who slacks off is not rewarded the same as someone who is coming in early and staying late. It hurts the moral, and discourages the desire to help a team as a whole due to the short-comings of the slackers.

    Not worth the year I wasted after college, provided no relevant experience to financial services industry.

    Pros

    Atmosphere was all 20 somethings, so it was fun to be around peers.

    Cons

    Management admitted to not being intelligent, micromanaging, horribly run, took advantage of college students desperate for jobs and paid them unlivable salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.


  2. No real skill development
