Peter Principle at its best

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

Pros

Used to have a very generous benefits package. Good concept of providing reasonably priced investment services to non-profits

Cons

has strayed too far from its core, trying to get into all aspects of financial business, many "lifers" who get promoted only because of their longevity, not talent or abilities; tremendous hierarchy, where new titles and job levels are created all the time to give lifers somewhere to go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house, starting with middle management with 20+ years at the company.

No opinion of CEO

    Financial Services company with above average salary and benefits.

    Provide a career growth and promote from within so people don't come for a few years, get the retirement and leave.
