    Pros

    Good benefits and time off. Excellent work/life balance. They prefer you not to work overtime if you are a non-exempt employee.

    Cons

    No career trajectory. Lack of recognition. Promotions not based on achievement. Those who deserve promotions do not get it because only a certain number of people per department can get it a year. Getting promoted from Risk Analyst is a pay cut because you go from non-exempt to exempt and are therefore ineligible for overtime. Too many team leaders that serve no purpose. Unfair treatment between those with and without children. No training. Risk Analyst formal training program is non-existent. This spring, there was a huge mass exodus of young people leaving for competitors or going back to school. Pay is okay for a starting salary but salaries are frozen and bonuses are minimal. Brokers hoard their accounts and are unwilling to give opportunities to young people because they need a minimum amount of revenue tied to their names. No opportunities to move to other departments. Stuck where you are!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more training. Morale is HORRIBLE. Going from business casual to business professional while many people lost their offices going to cubicles, salaries are frozen, employees have to start paying for parking. It is kicking people while they are down. The lack of career trajectory is driving your young people away.
