Pros

Pros- If you work hard and produce you can make a very good living. Senior management is very clear on what is expected of you and gives you the tools to achieve success. The ability to travel and present an ever changing product to the brightest men and women in the investment world.

Cons

Cons- There seems to be a lot of dead weight employees (as there is in every company) that can bring down morale in the office.

    Pros

    Zacks is a very specialized firm that caters to a very specific client base. I like the fact that the position is very challenging and that I work with very bright people. Working for a small company means that everyone's role is important and that we are nimble enough to change quickly to serve our clients.

    Cons

    Since we are expanding our growing pains are sometimes felt in that we cannot offer everything we would like to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay open to being client driven. Our services should serve them not the other way around. For the most part we deliver what what we promise, we need to continue to execute effectively.

    Seem to be actively outsourcing all departments to India - as mush as possible anyway.
