    Fake

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosnothing it is horrible place to work and the people that work there are the worst in the business. They got in trouble with IRS and now are under a different name.

    ConsAnything you can think of as unethical behavior and horrible to your clients revolves around these people. They know nothing about finance and half of them don't even have college "if not highschool" degrees.

    Advice to Senior Managementgo away

    Nope.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsUsed them to get my series 7 and left.

    Consterrible place, zero respect for anyone, they will use you, they will try and make you drink the coolaid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust google the guys that work there and you will see all of their scams. A new one just came in Novemeber the CEO is in alot of trouble with IRS and FINRA. Im surprised they made it this long with all of their scams but it seems like its catching up to them. I think FINRA is investigating them now dont even waste your time.

    Cons- extremely disorganized
    - what seemed to me was a 'shady' background of the company
    - 'shady' background of the president/future C.E.O.
    - one is worried about loosing his/her job every day since individuals get fired for ridiculous reasons
    - 'boiler room' like atmosphere

    Advice to Senior Management- increase the base salary
