Extremely strong company with a family feel

Financial Representative (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsHigh quality, inspiring people. As stable as a company can get. Committed to core values. Full of challenge. Most who enter the company and perform well will never leave. Culture is extremely strong.

ConsNot always the right people in the right positions. Main career (financial representative) is extremely challenging and many who try it will not be successful in the role.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate leadership constantly and don't shy away from change. Adapt to changing technology and invest in new resources.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
