Mismanaged firm with lack of vision or strategy amongst the leadership team other than following the bulge bracket firms

Pros

Stepping stone to other jobs within field.

Cons

Lack of communication is prevalent at all levels of this firm---from VP to MD to CEO---so the culture is still very much one of a boys' club.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with your employees in an authentic manner and have a strategy other than following what larger, bulge brackets do to make money in new products/markets.

    Pros

    Good money if you can become an market maker or coverage trader
    Probably the largest brokerage in the mpls st paul area

    Cons

    Huge turnover
    management incompetence
    investment banking runs this place
    lots of nepotism
    not much employee morale
    lay offs all of the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to have more stability in employment there, layoffs happen all of the time, one time they literally had everybody at their desk and if you were called you were laid off. pretty much like a firing squad.
