    Get it together or consider a new career.

    I have been working at Hold Brothers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small company where you you will see many different parts of the brokerage industry.

    Cons

    Very hard place to work. Benefits are awful. The CEO shows up at 4:30 PM and then starts to call meetings starting at 5:30 PM for that day and the meeting always start late. CEO does this so he "can get his money's worth" out of his employees. Not a place to work if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should be respectful to employees. Start meeting within the normal work day so you can get home to your wife and kids
