    Good place to begin if you want to work in financial field

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsIt is a fun work environment, people are easy to get along with and the attire is very casual. Thats about it.

    ConsIf you are a good employee management will continue to pile work on you, but no raise. If you make one single mistake you are immediately singled out. The benefits are not great. Work attire is casual as I said above, but some people take it overboard and dress like they are going to the club.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont make operational decisions without consulting them with the staff first. Learn to work as a team instead of being so cut throat towards each other.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    How they treat one of their top producing reps in the country

    Financial Representative (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsHigh payout (which means very limited vested interest in each rep)
    Fluent in Spanish (bc English is basically a 2nd language)

    Cons-Hard to communicate in fluent English with most back office employees
    -Back office turn time on requests are extremely slow
    -Terrible technology which leads to consistantly lost documents and files
    -Duties that should be handled by Execs are often passed off on less experienced employees with no real experience
    -Most responses from back office is "not my yob" and you are pushed to another department
    -For a small back office support staff, Execs are at arms length, but hide behind "layers" of employees to not have to handle concerns from Reps... (those layers are basically their assistant)

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you really want to be a "national player" treat your reps with the respect they deserve because without them, you do not have a job. Real advice, do your job and stop passing it off on less experienced staff and you will get better results (assuming the execs are actually qualified themselves)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A fantastic place to work when you have don't have tech skills and are not interested in getting them.

    Senior Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Miami Lakes, FL

    ProsThe best reason to work at Investacorp is to not have to worry about progress in technology and technical challenges.

    Cons- insufficient budget for new projects
    - insufficient staff for all projects
    - insufficient/inadequate hardware to suppor the company
    - very high pressure to perform without giving the tools to perform

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend the necessary money to obtain the results you want. You will not get the results you want by simply pitching employees against each other.
    Also evaluate the competence and output of old timers, senior and non-senior. IT department is pretty much left to its own devices, and this generate infinite stress and no productivity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
