Pros

*Exposure to the trading department of a mutual fund not in a major financial hub.
*Free lunch!
*Seeing the light of day during the winter and hitting the running trails early during summer.
*Gym in the building - although pretty small.
*Sweet benefits.

Cons

*If you are slow to pick things up, you will be a target.
*If you have any sort of ambition, you will lose it.
*If you want managers who care about your success, you will be disappointed.
*If you think you will be respected here, you will not.
*If you aren't a yes man (or woman), you will struggle.
*If you want to express an opinion, you will quickly find it doesn't matter.
*If you show respect, you will not be shown it back.
*if you make a mistake, you will be told it doesn't affect your future - it does!
*if you want to transfer departments, you will again realize nobody respects you.
*If you give your two weeks, you will not see a quiet exit.

Advice to Management

Pretend to care. Fight for your employees instead of telling them to roll with the punches of declining performance.
