Cons

Terrible compensation package (far below industry average)
Poor benefits
Worst technology of any company I've worked
Ego-driven CEO that makes senseless value destroying acquisitions
Must be "in" with management to move forward
Cheap to the point where quality is sacrificed
Management does not invest anything in its people

Advice to Management

Put the ego aside and focus on your shareholders
Invest in your people

    Pros

    Great culture for a mid sized broker dealer. Wonderful people to work with on a daily basis. The advisors in the field are great and have built many relationships that I would hate to leave. Fast growing company that has avoided all the pitfalls of other firms.
    Not overly micro managed.
    Very entrepreneurial.
    14 consecutive years of RECORD revenue. Awesome!!!

    Cons

    Compensation for home office personnel needs to be fixed now rather than later, because when the economy starts to turn and competitors start to hire, I'm afraid some very talented people may leave.

    Home office departments are too siloed. No communication. Has lead to unnecessary spending on software, etc.

    Due to the large growth of the company, many areas are significantly understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the little people who keep the company running and are an integral part of the advisors business.
    Need to get all middle management on the same page. It would save thousands of dollars.

    Pros

    Very good research department filled with smart people. Decent program for associates with access to management, sales, and banking. good exit opportunities.

    Cons

    Not a lot of negatives. Low pay relative to those on the Street, but Baltimore is a lot cheaper than NYC. Overall, good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Management does a great job and has been rewarded. Stock is doing well and ron makes a ton of money.
