    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is fulfilling to work at a place that can make a difference. The teams I worked with were great. The people are smart and professional. It is a great training ground for compliance. There is no opportunity for growth after five years.

    Cons

    Lots of wealthy executives and too many levels of management who have no idea what "the real world" is like and are more interested in the smallest, most gossipy details about people. There is no sense of stability. You have the feeling your job can be ended at any time and that you are not allowed to socialize. Not because of the economy, but because the management will push you out or blackball you if you cross them. I was warned not to talk to HR.

    Advice to Management

    Get some training in how to manage people for the exam managers and ADs. Get rid of the rich old-school leadership who don't have any idea of how to have a discussion with GEN X, GEN Y. We are intelligent, decent people.
