Movement in Management causing Negative Changes

Financial Consultant (Former Employee)

ProsGreat Salary! I enjoyed working with people who had been in the business for a very long time. I was always learning something new.

ConsConstant movements in management caused negativity with employees and unwelcome changes. The overall atmosphere of the job after some of these changes was negative. All employees in my office were VERY unhappy when I left.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to changes, peoples entire lives are affected by these changes. One person in the wrong position can cause serious loss of talent.

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