    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial and front office personnel have unlimited bonus potential. Resources of a big bank without the bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Front office employees are paid on a draw and typically not salaried. Still a young company that needs to continue to make a name for itself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing strategically and selectively. Grow the brand and become more recognizable as the company is one of a kind and truly offers value to its customers

    Pros

    We have a great team of employees with strong knowledge of the business. Our people are positive, friendly, always willing to help and work together to get the job done. Our work environment is pleasant, positive and has nice perks like occasionally free lunches and celebrations for birthdays and above average quarterly numbers.

    Cons

    There is sometimes an inadequate amount of training and the pay grade is low based on daily tasks/responsibilities, education and experience. Education level is not valued nor compensated as much as should be.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more in-depth training for employees in place of the 'learning on the fly' approach. Financially compensate employees better in order to have a better financial wellbeing and quality of life.

    Pros

    It's kind of a cowboy shop. Reminded me of what you hear about the culture of banking in the old days. The experience of the actual work and day to day seemed great. It's a good place to start,

    Cons

    The monetary benefits seem to be below market.

    Pros

    The accounts payable department had multiple employees, so they had more capabilities then the accounts receivable department, which only had two employees. The benefits and the pay were okay.

    Cons

    Even with having various locations, there was only one accounting department that deals with the brokers’ customers. The communication between upper/lower management and employees was terrible. W-2’s are not electronic and will be received by the last day of January. The accounts receivable department had two employees, a senior accountant (who lacks the comprehension to do her job) and an accounts receivable specialist/coordinator but the specialist/coordinator has been replaced multiple times so the only common denominator on why they leave is the senior accountant.

    Advice to Management

    Management should see that there is a pattern in the accounts receivable department; someone is not seeing the big picture that the senior accountant is not a substantial supervisor and should be trained or demoted.

    Pros

    I've been working for them for almost a year. As I'm meeting more people I'm seeing that in a world filled with red tape, our company offers plenty of opportunity for people who are driven and motivated to being the best in their field. The culture is fairly relaxed but each department has its stress depending on what time of the year we are in. Our risk managers and their training program is one of the best out there.

    Cons

    I think the company is fantastic for self motivated people, but there is a lack of training held on an annual basis on basic functions for management. Little to no training on specifics. Support functions can be difficult. If you have to be told what to do 100% of the time it may not be a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Work on company wide training initiatives.
