I worked at Carlson Advisors

Pros

Salary was above average; some employees were great to work with.

Cons

Treated with utmost disrespect by one individual. Attempted to transfer/leave twice but was talked out of it only to be fired later without warning. Other admins refused to work in this position and were reduced to tears previously in the position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rein in your high level executives; make sure there is not a hostile work environment. Try not to make your admins cry.

    I have been working at Carlson Advisors full-time

    Pros

    They have a very supportive work environment. My starting salary was great, I was made to feel welcome and I can finish school while working here. They are open to answering questions that I might have and provide a professional environment with great hours and a nice benefit package.

    Cons

    I don't like how expensive the insurance is. With or without my family being added, spending almost half of a paycheck on health insurance is crazy. I also would like to point out that there is a little tension in the office due to one person not playing as a team player, but this wasn't directed at me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some add words to the website for ALL the services Carlson Advisers provides, the companies website didn't even come up as a blip on the radar when I typed in searches for some of the accounting services offered by this company.
