I have been working at Zacks Investment Research

Pros

friendly place to work at mos of the times. it's a good combination of corporate(mid sized company) and family business (privately owned).

Cons

the management doesn't treat you with respect unless they are your peers or above their level. they are very cheap. i heard that one time, before i joined, the admin team came by each station/desk and collected all the post its not being used.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop treating your subordinates like pawns and bring more respect to the table. show more concern about who work for you.

    Pros

    You can read newspaper, browse web and enjoy your day there without anyone checking your work;
    you get free benefit by telling lies such as I am sick

    Cons

    ideas are usually not respected;
    personal contribution not rewarded;
    VP makes all the say, even when they make stupid decisions - and by the way, you are often the last one to know anything about it;
    people are let go without giving a second chance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Len oversees everything, but he is too old and old-fashioned that he barely gives a shXt to employee's complains;
    and, he takes a close control of budget, so don't ever expect him to give you raise, or even support your green card application!
