New leadership is all about what is best for them personally; NOT about doing the right thing for the company

Pros

Company used to be one of the best places to work with leaders that truly cared about the employees and doing the right thing no matter what

Cons

New top leadership is only out for their personal success and doesn't own up to anything bad that they have caused. Shady, egomaniacs with no integrity that are screwing people over. You know who you are.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The new President is the worst thing to ever happen to that company. Too big of an ego, not enough character. Get rid of him. Enough said.

    I have been working at Penson Worldwide

    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.
