Disappointing career move

Operations Associate (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

Pros-Team members are friendly enough
-They offer the opportunity for people with little to no experience to get their foot in the door of the financial industry

Cons-There is no opportunity for growth
-Productivity matrix puts extreme pressure on employees and causes them to make mistakes... then the errors are reported and used against the employees
-Management can't be bothered to even talk to the employees, much less guide them
-Salaries are much lower than the industry standard and bonuses are held over employees' heads
-Quarterly performance reviews for associates that include review of errors and anonymous peer feedback

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
