    Morgan Keegan & Company, Inc.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsCareer 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 Senior ManagementCare more about attracting and retaining talent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ok company

    Analyst (Former Employee)

    Prosyou will make decent money but there is a lot of bureaucracy and passive aggressive managers. make sure you get in well with the top people to ensure success

    Consit can be difficult to avoid certain people on a daily basis. you might constantly be put on deal teams with the same person that you dont like. there is nothing you can do about it
