    Pros

    The workload is ultra light, so you'll be paid to be semi-retired.

    Cons

    Be sure to ask about "the process" and where you'll fit in. Don't be surprised if there is no real process and your job is to provide a first draft that will be edited by four or five others you've never met. Ask about the manager and their background. Don't be surprised if this person has almost no background. Get set to be scolded as if you were a bad child. A number of writers have cycled through but you may not learn their stories until it's too late.

    Don't assume that this is like any other reputable financial company you've worked with because the old fashioned, egos-in-silos mentality is very entrenched here. Also, be prepared to be completely idle at least 85% of the time but not allowed to read anything other than the company website.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on the idea of using your moral compass because at some point, it's insulting. If you've investigated your employees' backgrounds, you already know they're honest. Too much emphasis on morality suggests that there's some big-time dishonesty going on that we'll be reading about in the papers.

    Also, give people proper sick days again. There are too many people coming to work for weeks with fevers and flu because they don't want to sacrifice their paid-time-off days in case their kids get sick.
