Good Benefits, pay a little low

Registered Representative I (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsGood benefits (vacation time, sick time, good health benefits), a lot of opportunities in other departments, time off for volunteering, good work life balance

ConsPay is a little low. Employee moral was a little low (but it was during the big downturn in the market). Although there is definitely opportunity to move to other departments, most of the moves are lateral. There isn't a lot of room for upward advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep an eye on what your employees are feeling...bad morale spreads quickly

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
