    Pros

    Training, Sales leads, CRM, and phone system are good. They have alot of essentials to be a salesman. Great place to start a financial career and move on after learning the ropes in 1 to 2 years time frame.

    Cons

    Pay and sales goals. For having such high sales goals, the pay doesn't follow. It's more of a Canadian bank than a Wall St firm. The pay doesn't match the goals they want you to achieve. Definitely not Wall St. material.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce layer after layer of unnecessary management. The management is more worried about their management job than their office staff. If you don't pay the employees, you won't retain them.

  2. Repetitive, quarterly treadmill with no end in sight.

    Pros

    Direct Managers are great, great company name/reputation, overtime opportunities, coworkers

    Cons

    Office politics, Temp employee structure for cheap labor, robotic work, upper management, pay, interview style is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Consider making hiring decisions based on temporary employees who are proving to be efficient, making numbers, and going above and beyond rather than hiring incompetent individuals from outside the company.

    Pros

    I was only a temporary intern but I was given mentorship and decent amount of responsibility considering my experience. My manager was very flexible with hours I put so if I was late, all I had to do was make up the time afterwords.
    Since I was a temp though I don't have too much insight on training full time employees get along with their time off policies

    Cons

    A temp intern won't face too much cons here.
    Some days work was a bit slow so it got boring.
    Pay for intern was kind of on the low side.

    Advice to Management

    The CTO and the rest of the leadership in the Tech section were very good leaders. Please continue on what you are doing.

    Pros

    Positive environment, very nice co-workers. I learned a lot about how a large business worked but not as much about the industry I want to go into.

    Cons

    As an intern (probably not super qualified for the job coming in) I was intimidated by experienced people who spoke in very technical finance lingo. I wished this job was more of an educational experience rather than answering the phones. I think their goal in having interns answer the phones was pretty much to alleviate call volume coming in.

    Advice to Management

    None - all experiences with them were positive

  10. Time to Move On

    Pros

    The salary is decent though it took a while to get it. I get more time off than i need. Good combination of daily work along with special projects to break the day to day grind.

    Cons

    Realistically you max out at around a 2% to 3% bump in base pay every year which hardly keeps pace with inflation. I do not see a path forward if i wished to increase my salary by 20 to 30 percent without going into management.

  11. The company was a pretty good to work for but the job was not good.
