    Pros

    An investment company that truly has the client's goals and well being first and not selling the "product" of the day.

    Cons

    The only con I from my perspective is they eliminated the division I worked for and I can no longer work for them.

  2. Needs Improvement

    Pros

    The coworkers are great people. We have a small office and I know some of the people here pretty well. Meetings are few and far between which is a big plus and I have seldom been forced to stay late.

    Cons

    There is very little vacation time and only one sick day per year. At the present time there are multiple moving parts and salaries/benefits are below average.

    Advice to Management

    The vacation time and sick day policies are pretty awful. Other benefits need to be improved. Set realistic goals don't set ridiculous goals and than just say well we fell short.

    Pros

    Great company with lot of upward mobility. My bosses have very high expectations and have made me a better employee for it. They offer tremendous opportunities for learning and growth. Education is paid for.

    They are growing like crazy as well. There is a lot of room for upward mobility. Success and standing is merit based.

    Cons

    Compensation when you start is low.

    Pros

    Great people all across the board! Well educated, ambitious and very helpful in sharing ideas and best practices...

    Cons

    not many... but growth can be difficult as most positions are already set in place... the tech to support your daily business agenda was lacking but many changes have taken place within the firm so I believe it is headed in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Overall culture needs to be unified and reignited..

    Pros

    Great starter job for someone fresh out of school.
    Able to have a good work life balance and enjoyed many co-workers.

    Cons

    Management makes short sighted decisions and the corporate culture is a disaster. You will hear the word budget on a daily basis.
