Pros

Largest broker in the world. Segmented groups allow for greater focus and expertise. The majority of employees have positive attitudes and enjoy what they do. Numerous employees that left the firm have come back proving that the grass isn't always greener.

Cons

Corporate structure can be slow at times. Not necessarily a con, but you will need to be patient to see large pay increase.

    Pros

    Corporate Structure
    On Site Cafe
    Broad locations worldwide

    Cons

    Pay/Rewards
    Politics - For success you must join in with the fake management onboard. I refused to play on the team.
    Too much red tape, very management heavy. It takes 5 weeks to get anything done
    Lots of waste- management, processes, system
    Systems and programs are from 1990 or earlier

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe work to remove some of the inefficient management from the top and things will shift in the right direction.
    Invest in your technology, 1990 systems should be long gone if you want to become an winning organization.

    A great place to work so long as you sell, but don't expect a lot of support developing other skills.

    Pros

    Upbeat, professional environment. Leadership tends to let middle management run the show. Charitable focus. Competitive salary.

    Cons

    Senior management can lose focus, allowing for some bad decisions to be made at the operational level. Commitment to employees, teamwork and winning seems to have been lost within MMA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to doing the things that worked in the past. Such as incenting employees at all levels, encouraging employees and teamwork, and guiding middle management.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
