Great Mutual fund managers and products. Very strong training and benefits.

Apply more emphasis to a product's profitability for all staff involved.

    Pros

    Nice office environment - newish, attractive campus setting, cafteria, free gym, hours
    (no OT)

    Cons

    Very micromanaged, all phone calls were recorded, you were graded and forced to follow a script even if it didn't make sense, or you didn't get credit for the call

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let yourself be brown nosed by a kissup. Mgmt should set a good example and be degreed and have all basic licenses.

    Pros

    Everyone is always willing to help whenever you need assistance with something important, and the superior ranks are very good charismatic and caring people.

    Cons

    Wish the working conditions were better though, I feel like there should be more interactive places inside the firm where the employees get the chance to get to know each other better.
