    Pros

    Good culture. The people were great. The work-life balance, at least in my department was really good. It was relatively low stress while I was there. I enjoyed my co-workers. Senior manager was very nice, although I didn't get the feeling they knew exactly what they were doing.

    Cons

    Seemed very chaotic and unorganized. Upper management took a good old boy approach it seemed.

    Pros

    Decent pay for entry level tech work.
    7 1/2 hour days compared to a normal 8
    Not a stressful job, lots of calls but very rarely did you get rude people on the other end

    Cons

    Barely any room to move up in the company
    No parking garage for employees, have to pay for parking

    Advice to Management

    Try to promote from within more

    Pros

    Good company, good people. A great learning environment if new to a brokerage firm. Allows you to see what areas of the business you like and dislike.

    Cons

    Career Advancement is tough. Each department is like a different firm. Tough to network w/o stepping on toes. More of who you know and not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about attracting and retaining talent.

  7. It was overall positive but needed to be a little more progressive on finding new ways to do business.
