    Pros

    Penson has an interesting mix of people. There's never a dull moment because priorities constantly shift. For the most part, people work in teams and it's not cutthroat.

    Management is well-intentioned, and I think they do want what's best for employees.

    Cons

    Overall, working in IT can be frustrating because bureaucracy inhibits accomplishment.

    Upper management has made some tactical errors which have limited the companies profitability. Unfortunately, this has negatively impacted employees.


  2. Penson is a great place to work when the economy is good and interest rates are high.

    Pros

    Penson has very kind people and the managers, vps, and senior managers foster a positive environment at the company.

    Cons

    The low interest rate environment has made Penson a very stressful place to work. In addition, the Ridge deal has consumed lots of resources in a time that is already very challenging for the industry.
