    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Bright, personable analysts that sold themselves - Learn on a daily basis - great co-workers - benefits, summer hours, free ice cream days, golf team, concierge service, etc (lots of little perks that add up)

    Cons

    - no sense of urgency to get things done from an mid/upper management standpoint - spent too much time trying to prove why a change was needed - sales people given too many chances if they were not performing

    Advice to Management

    Look to cut costs were people are not doing their jobs. Reward people for hard work. Ensure poeple have goals and comp packages at the beginning of the year- not 1/2 way through it. Get rid of the people that are barriers and make the environment uncomfortable

    Unclear management directives. Excessive cost cutting is hurting the company. Large egos of some senior managers makes decision making more difficult than it should be.

    Need better accountability. Under-performing managers and employees are not let go quickly enough which hurts morale. Some managers don't listen to their own staff.
