I have been working at Zacks Investment Research full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are some good guys that work for the company and are very easy to get along with.

Cons

IT Management has compound issues. IT is split between 2 departments with no over-recing goal of actually improving the company. Management drives out competent talent or fires them for wanting to do job correctly. Those that are qualified and stay get stifled and just do bare minimum to make it bearable. IT constantly battles with business instead of tryin to support nd make things better. I.E. - making poor choices and not growing but stagnating so goals cant be met.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

IT Management just needs to change, the two individuals that are currently running are not equipped to do so.

    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.
