Pros

- It is possible to move positions within different departments fairly easily
- Good employee benefits

Cons

- You are on the phone all day long listening to other people's problems which can be kind of stressful
- Micro management to the point where every second of your day must be accounted for

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Less micro management of employee's time - trust that your employees are going to do their job efficiently
- More incentive for sales

    Pros

    Relaxed environment allows you to balance personal life and work. If you put forth the extra effort, you will have select oppurtunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Little communication from top down. Low pay creates high turnover. Often becomes a case of being well liked vs. skilled. Lack of redunency at some positions means working odd hours from time to time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your team a little more and watch the talent level increase.

    Pros

    This is an inbound call center--not very glamorous work, but the company knows this is a realatively lousy job and doesn't try to sugar-coat it.

    Cons

    constant turn over between etrade, morgan stanley, wells, and fidelity. if you want a promotion, you have to walk across the street to another firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a handle of the revolving door between Wells, ETrade, Morgan Stanley and Fidelity. Create a career path for advancement
