I have been working at LPL Financial full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I have been fortunate to work with some great people in my specific department in the San Diego office - they are non-micromanaging, I and others have had our hard work recognized, contrary to some other reviews, the jobs that are being outsourced are not jobs which would require speaking to financial advisors or clients and many of these jobs are being completed more accurately and efficiently than when we had people here in the US doing them and I have completely enjoyed my experience with the firm, enough so to recommend a couple of former colleagues apply for positions with LPL.

Cons

Compared to my prior employers in the industry, I find this company has few downsides - I know I am fortunate to work in a building where parking is easy, where working part-time from home is an option and I have had almost no contact with employees who are lazy, incompetent or not friendly. So Cons? I have heard that some salaries are below the market but LPL just announced they completed an industry analysis and are raising salaries for those that are below market for 2014.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am impressed by the amount of communication we receive from upper management, I like that I have had the opportunity to meet and ask questions of several upper executives and I find the current direction of the firm to be ambitious, competitive in the industry and I say keep doing what you're doing!
