    Pros

    You will be rewarded for the work you put in. Dream high and the sky is the limit. Honestly, everyone in management encourages your success and will give you the best tools to get there.

    Cons

    Long hours, but that is never a bad thing when you like the job you're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Great work. Keep it up.

    Pros

    This brokerage firm has nice looking offices in a famous iconic skyscraper (Chrysler Building), which impresses most clients and has easy mass transit connections in midtown Manhattan. .

    Cons

    There is little if anything to commend this place. The bottom line is a management that has no interest or concern with its retail brokers. They make you feel like a dairy cow which is tolerated so long as it produces sufficient milk. Payout is on the low side and broker turnover is high. The firm"s only interest is to maximize profit for top management.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to be greedy.

  7. An organization of sub-par talent who happen to have their broker licenses
