    Limited growth potential

    Operations (Current Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsLocation is great and employees are pretty friendly. Management is competent. There is always someone who is willing to help out.

    ConsMust pay for parking downtown. Not much room for growth and the salaries provided are well below average in the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time out to mentor the new guys. Also provide feedback based on how employees are doing within the company .

    Great place to work!

    Portfolio Accountant (Current Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsFamily-like environment. The senior management makes a special effort to relate, and interact with employees on every level. I can see myself working here my entire career.

    ConsThe only downside is the compensation for an entry level salary is slightly lower than similar firms. Semi-annual bonuses compensate for the lower salary.

    Educational

    Intern (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat Experience. Have a lot of exposure to senior employees of the firm because it is a very small firm.

    ConsLow compensation, struggling to balance the costs of living in a town like San Francisco on a low intern salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to expand your M&A focus to include larger deals, maybe not just middle market. Morgan Keegan has a large balance sheet.

    Decent

    Trader (Former Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsIf you make it to the top they compensate will. Friendly and fun work environment. Not a fan of memphis though..

    ConsYou have to know someone to get a good position...hard work will only go so far. The good sales jobs go to the guys who born into it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome poorly performing divisions should be cut loose. I think to compete competitively with the other banks you will have to improve your equity division

    I guess I should not be surprised.

    Developer (Current Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsA chance to work with a market mover and one of the most stable financial organizations. Hoping to learn from others and be involved with the major market movers and decision makers.

    ConsManagement is very hierarchical and rigid in organization. Managers worship their superiors, respect their peers and look down upon their underlings. Software is looked down upon as a necessary evil and not in their interest. Southern good old boys network.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs with many employers in the South, one's religions beliefs make a big difference in how you areviewed. If you don't tow the party line, you are osratisized.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A summer in downtown austin

    Summer Fixed Income Analyst (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsBest experience you can get without having to go to a financial center (NYC, Chicago, Houston, Dallas). Very easy-going, slow-paced, and easy to learn, but still get lots of info and experience.

    ConsThe prestige level is not too high. There's not too much need for work, so I spent a lot of time sitting around the office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand! Quickly! There are some great people working there, that can handle more than whats on the plate at the moment. Besides that, not much else

    Financial Advisor for Morgan Keegan

    Financial Consultant (Current Employee) Pensacola, FL

    Prosyou are allowed to work independently you are not mandated to sell certain investments you are given leaway as to how to run your business good technology and research

    Consnot much support in beginning your practice-bank leads are minimal sometimes you feel alone and left to fend for yourself while other advisors are prospering

    Advice to Senior Managementcould offer more communication on how to improve/increase business-best practices the leadership has given the firm a great reputation but dealing with bank partners could be better

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
