Pros

The manager was nice and worked around my schedule. The manager also bought us lunch quite frequently. They hire most of their interns as stock brokers upon graduation so if you want to become a broker, this is a good place to start.

Cons

The work was very boring sometimes. In fact, I spent hours not doing anything at all! I did get paid for it though, so I can't complain too much.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell me my business boy, just joining the union. ADVICE: You should have taken some, the rest I'm hoping to publish.

    Pros

    None. Hard to find any.

    Cons

    1. Cliquish atmosphere. in circle verses out circle.
    2. Management talks about employees taking challenges outside of comfort zone. If you apply, there will be a candidate already lined up.
    3. Management has no clue. Sinking ship, people leaving in droves.
    4. Work atmosphere or culture is horrible. All that managers do is stand in hallways and laugh out loud for hours together.
    5. Very few projects/work.
    6. Lot of effort spent on getting the surveys filled in to show on the best places to work. Not genuine. making the ranks for computerworld survey and fortune survey feedback is the goal.
    7. Talent does not matter, need to be good at brown nosing the manager.
    8. exclusive groups, arrogance and politics are taking the company in the wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip on what is going on.
    Talent is leaving fast.
