Politics. This is normal in companies of this size but it seems to be more apparent as of late.

Advice to Management

Keep focused on great products and less on politics

    Pros

    Good pay and perks. Technology and exercise reimbursement. Good company culture. Excellent training program for Series 7. Active management. The company is huge so lots of room for advancement. Best profit sharing and retirement match of any company I have worked for.

    Cons

    It's a never ending avalanche of calls. Trading phones can be tough. This kind of job is not for everyone. Can feel robotic at times.

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding. Great licensing programs.

    Cons

    Business units operate in silos. Hard to move up if you start in a phone role. Senior management is disconnected from representatives. One year requirement to stay in a phone role each time you change positions. Six sick days per year and only 4 weeks vacation time no matter how long you have been with the firm. Technology is outdated and they layer applications on top of old platforms. Signifcant barrier to doing your job effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what representatives are actually saying. Rebuild your systems from scratch instead of adding new applications onto outdated, overworked systems.
