Zacks review

Research Intern (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsGood training ground for an entry analyst, while still in undergrad
Many opportunities to apply academic skills and test in real life experiences
Also, would not take this as a full time job unless you are really into researching
I am looking to be a trader, and it's great to pick up on some research skills, they offer many products for institutional investors

ConsNot as open communication as desirable, between different sectors and framing a big picture of the market, even if on a weekly basis

Advice to Senior ManagementConnect all different sectors and synthesize info from each sector
Management can also be more helpful in terms of framework of researching
First couple of weeks could have been a lot easier in transitioning if a basic framework was recommended

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
