Pros

Opportunity to take your career in any direction you want within capital markets. There's a seat for every product with real front office responsibility and experience.
Great launching pad to land a more specialized role with higher pay once you figure out your career goals.
Work life balance and great people to work with
Take care of their people with comp and benefits

Cons

Retail focus... second in line to institutional business
Paid 20% below street (but still paid well)
Management turning desk into agency business and a lot of red tape

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent with employees
Better pay based on merit
Don't roll over into an agency desk

Recommends
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great place for an intern if looking to become a FA or simply to gain more knowledge in the different types of investment vehicles.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth if your interest is in research, as I said before, if your interested in becoming a FA they will require you to take the series exams
