    Pros

    Some of the employees were truly hard working good people, who cared for the well being of those around them.

    Cons

    Senior management were some of the most vile people I have ever known and I've been in the industry for more than 25 years, working in London, NY and Stamford for this company. Their greed, especially around comp time, was obnoxious. I also have nothing good to say about the HR organization -- each and every one of them was a waste of space.

    Advice to Management

    Bring some senior Swiss nationals to work in NY and London so that they can truly see what goes on in this organization in the regions. They will be shocked.

    Pros

    If you work with good brokers, you have the potential to make a lot of money.

    Cons

    You are at the mercy of your brokers. Sometimes they are just cheap, but I've seen some who are downright abusive. Management clearly cares more about the FA's best interests over the assistant's.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your CSA's from their brokers.

    Pros

    They are attuned to family needs of their employees. They are flexible with work arrangements. They strive to enact policies to ensure compliance with applicable rules and regulations.

    Cons

    Their salary patterns seem to be out of step with industry norms. Communication to staff needs to be more open. Also, their is inconsistency with what is said versus actions taken.

    Advice to Management

    They need to re-evaluate their business model and the importance that is being placed on short-term savings over experience/quality and the positive long-term effect that the latter would yield.
