Pros

Talented cast of individuals working at the firm.
Majority are SME and very friendly and willing to help.
Firm is well known in the industry

Cons

Lack of opportunity for growth on many occasions.
Promotions exist only whenever someone leaves a position.
Firm does not cover additional training that may prove helpful in the future for both the firm & the employee.
Very tight budgets in many departments which also means that you have to make due with what tools you have.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and contribute in ways that will provide growth opportunities and mentoring for them to succeed. Recognize those employees that put their heart and soul into the company and assist in elevating them to the next level. Motivate and train managers to challenge those on their team to perform to their potential and be sure to listen to their feedback received.

    Pros

    The employees of the company, outside of HR were great. Most people there like what they do and enjoy working together.

    Cons

    I worked in one area of HR during my time there. The HR department didn't hold the same standards and values as other areas of the business. It's too bad, good company but not the best department. Can feel like you are stuck in a position with no room for growth. Also, not typical of other areas of the company but definetely the feeling in that department.


  2. Decent place to start a financial career.

    Pros

    Good training in the beginning and a good introduction to the financial services industry. Co-workers are mostly helpful and engaged.

    Cons

    Poor starting salary. Very little chance of advancement unless you want another phone job. Management changes direction often and seems to have very little direction.
