I worked at National Securities

Pros

Lack of formal structure found at most financial services company allowing someone without the "right" experience to get hired or promoted. A good way to gain experience.

Cons

Management does not share information and decisions seem completely based on immediate impacts rather than long term prospects. Management will throw money at problems without proper due diligence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your company is you people and for the company to survive you need to value your people that are contributing as assets to the team rather than throwing money at temporary solutions.

    I worked at National Securities

    Pros

    I was essentially able to be my own boss. And the Financial District location is a healthy environment for the growth of a financial professional.

    Cons

    There was very little structure within the firm. I was, in sense, thrown to the wolves. Not a good place for a young inexperienced broker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build more structure for new brokers. Form training programs to teach new recruits about the market, the economic environment and their general relationship to each other.
