Pros

I worked in IT. My immediate team was nice, the pay was good, and I didn't work every weekend. My job was ok. To do my job took wayyyy longer than it needed to take.

Cons

I think the culture is competitive to the point that people don't readily share knowledge. They hide it from each other in order to make themselves look better. That kind of behavior doesn't help a company move forward. They are also way too conservative and never want to take responsibility. Instead, they make decisions by consensus so that no one is to blame if something goes wrong.

    Pros

    Compensation is pretty good for those with no experience. Easy way to obtain series 7 if that is your goal. Great work life balance outside of tax season. Good job to leave work at work.

    Cons

    Definition of dead end job. Although compensation is good to start, variable compensation is determined by managers who frequently play favorites. Off phone jobs and advancement potential is almost non existent and has little to do with job performance.Micro managing is rampant with too many inputs to job performance. Management frequently says one thing and does another. Management is invested in keeping employees not marketable for superior jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent.

    Pros

    Profit sharing is 7% after you have been there for 1 year. They will reimburse you for college and even 25% for a new laptop and printer.

    Cons

    Do not believe or support employees. On-boarding managers are unprofessional and condescending.

    Advice to Management

    Revise training program for Financial Representative program. It is not normal for 60% of your classes to fail. Properly train managers to be humans beings and not robots.
