    Pros

    Great benefits, knowledgeable investment personnel, work/life balance, reasonable cost of living in Baltimore (as opposed to NY, CHI, or SF). Reasonable vacation policies

    Cons

    It can be a slow-moving organization at times with a focus of being overly conservative in every aspect of the business. Very little interaction between departments

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between various levels of the organization is necessary to develop and retain top talent. People need to feel like there are opportunities for growth outside of their group.

    Pros

    Work life balance , collaborative culture, hiring more leadership from outside the firm to increase overall diversity of thought and inclusion. Comfortable working conditions

    Cons

    Year over year salary increases are below average, many leaders grew up in the company so lacks external perspective and experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Continued focus on diversity and inclusion and offer more competitive salaries to attract and retain talent

    Pros

    Solid training in financial services from investments through sales techniques. Comparable to other large MF organizations in the space. Their thinking is to rely on good benefits and training as a substitute for compensation.

    Cons

    Significant political games and salaries are not close to market rate for revenue generated. Bonus structure is weak. Lack of upward movement unless in the HQ location.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate the foundation of AUM retention and growth. Fund performance is solid, however, clients should be a focus which the reps care for on a daily basis.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot of good details about the finance industry and tips on how to save for your retirement.

    You meet great people who can become lasting friends.

    You don't have to have a college degree to work there and the pay starts at about $36,000.

    Cons

    -High turnover
    -Inconsistent Management
    -Lack of employee motivation

    I went through 4 Supervisors in the time I was there. One was a new supervisor and he was awful. He never followed-through with scheduling sit-ins with other departments, he did not respond to emails or put through time requests. He was one of the most frustrating managers I have ever worked for. He said he wanted your honest opinion of his performance since this was his first time as a Supervisor, but when I provided feedback, he used that against me. I had to complain to the Group Managers, but there was no results from that. The job caused so much stress and anxiety I had to quit.

    The last several months I was there, the department's staff dwindled and we were outrageously busy and could not keep up with client demand. They have been working the dept 50 hour work-weeks since January. Everyone there is getting burnt out!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent managers and treat your employees better. Maybe then your service-levels will improve.

    Pros

    Top notch 401k matching and contributions.

    Cons

    Direct pay is lower than competitors due to other benefits (401k contributions, etc.). Advancement can prove challenging due to the the long tenure of employees. Many are considered "lifers" and will likely retire at the company (a rarity in today's world).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
