Pros

Good benefits. Flexible work schedule.

Cons

Management does a poor job of communication. Poor or lack of end of year review system. Terrible bonuses & annual raises. Lack of diversity. Very difficult move up in the ranks.

Advice to Management

Treat the employees right and you will get more out of them. Many people are underpaid and slack off in the office as a result. Low morale.

    Pros

    An essentially flat file management structure. Typical of the industry trends in compensation, the majority of bonuses are paid in stock. The upside is that stock has performed relatively well.

    Cons

    Can be difficult at times to navigate conflicting interests of various divisions and individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a head of equity research that has actual equity research experience and competence, so that needs of clients and analysts are met and a first class product can be produced.
