    Pros

    Name recognition and on-site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Training on the job specific material was rushed and too much material covered in too little time. Facilitator, while very knowledgeable about the subject matter, was a poor "teacher." Conditions of employment NOT communicated until AFTER I began working. Examples: 1. Employees must have their financial portfolios with EJ. 2. Call Center environment...stuck at desk for 8 hours w/headset. 3. Team lead who hired me NOT doing my evaluations...another Sr. Team member is.

    Advice to Management

    Need full transparency during interview/hiring process. Less drink the kool-aid training...more emphasis on job specific training.

    Pros

    Great corroborative atmosphere, client focused, good perks

    Cons

    Did not provide enough support after training was over.

    Advice to Management

    To help with retention, there definitely should be someone in the region, especially in metro locations, to help with the new advisers and go through the motions with them
