Pros

They give you a lot of freedom and resources to succeed. The reputation is good and if you are a self starter you can succeed. Management is supportive and want you to succeed.

Cons

Perhaps not enough direction given especially to young employees with limited work experience. It is very difficult to meet goals and the majority of people will fail. Much of this is due to the individual employee not doing enough but the lack of direction from management doesn't help.

Advice to Management

Work on integrating new FAs into teams so they are less likely to fail.

  1. Used to be a great company but senior management ran out of ideas and knows only to cut cost to bare bones

    Pros

    Great people working there and mostly helpful.

    Cons

    Salary is lower for longer serving employees compared to newer employees

    Advice to Management

    pay employees fairly and recognize employees for their contribution. Not connections.


  2. Experience depends on the team you are in - but not good for career if you are interested in software technology

    Pros

    Money, vacation, nice culture and people.

    Cons

    Too many re-orgs, baggage of old projects, not enough attention given to newer technologies, arbitrary and secretive promotion process

    Advice to Management

    Fix the "Cons" from above.
