    Pros

    You will specialize in specific areas. You become friendly with most of the people there and its a very open environment. They have 401K matching and relatively good benefits.

    Cons

    Don't expect that you will learn how to value a company, select investments, become a trader, manage accounts or really do much in finance. Rather you will focus on doing one thing over and over for comp that is simply better elsewhere. However, if you are on the sales side the comp was pretty good but that may have changed. Also don't really expect job satisfaction as the culture isn't easy to deal with.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
