    Amazing Advancement

    Various (Former Employee) Centennial, CO

    ProsMany of the managers are willing to promote from within and encourage lateral moves within the company so that you can learn new skills quite quickly. Many people have been with the company for many years, and it's great to work for a variety of them because 9 times out of 10, they will know someone in an area you're interested in trying out and they will help you get there. Lots of time off and good insurance, employee discounts at local and national businesses.

    ConsThe Colorado office is the home of the call center and processing areas, which tend to be lower paid and some people think less respected.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue realizing that developing employees the the best way to have terrific people working at the company.

    A great culture on the trading floor

    Investment Operations Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat benefits and an extremely fun working environment. Especially for the trading desks jobs, there is no room for addition. This allows for a very loose and enjoyable learning internship with excellent work-life balance.

    ConsBasically a dead end for interns. This is a company that poaches senior management from other companies. Has room for and hires very little fresh blood, which is made known from the onset of the internship. Their mutual funds are very weak and underperforming compared to the market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to hire young workers in order to change attract young investors. Senior players are out of touch with the current generation.

    Great place to work.

    Investment Management (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent opportunities to learn and contribute to the organization's success. You can truly learn and grow at the firm as management makes significant efforts to provide opportunities to employees.

    ConsYou must be pro-active in developing your own career. It's up to you to take advantage of the opportunities provided and step-up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. The culture is very professional. For the most part this is meritocracy and people work together as a team.

    Senior Solutions Engineer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGood package, great people, flexible hours, company pays for your training, a lot of options for internal training, good place to learn new things.

    ConsBad situation with managers. They come and go, or they are let go. This is unfortunate as good people are leaving the company because of the poor management.
    Not a great place to have a baby, max 12 weeks off and only 7 of them are payed by the company.

    Call center purgatory

    Service Associate (Current Employee) Englewood, CO

    ProsDecent co-workers. non cutthroat corporate culture, great work life balance, some people will listen if presented with a good idea, on site cafe

    ConsLow pay for industry, little room for any advancement besides lateral, campus is not conveniently located, vertical management model with more reverence to tenure and rank than to contributions

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep flows coming in, offer exciting products, offer more social events to improve culture

    Job experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe culture, the people, and benefits are great.

    Consincreases in salary are minimal. maybe 3% per year max. Supervisor salary is dismal compared to other call centers & their benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile benefits packages are good. bonuses only come once per year. it's hard to manage when you have to depend on getting a bonus once per year. Especially when your last 3 months is what people remember. Pay people what the deserve all year long. other companies packages are comparable.

    Not a bad place

    Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsMost employees are nice people, it's a friendly environment with very good work life balance. It's a profitable industry so they can afford to provide good benefits and compensation.

    ConsThe company has been around a long time with a lot of old timers who can be resistant to change. It also has an old school feel, especially on the technology front. Different departments tend to work in silos rather then collaboratively. It's a big name but feels small and there isn't much room to advance in many areas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFoster greater cooperation among departments and provide more opportunities for employee development

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
