    Pros

    Gateway to the industry. Good for those just graduating from undergrad looking to take securities licensing exams at a small brokerage firm. But stay motivated and get out quick, don't become stuck working here. Move on to bigger and better things.

    Cons

    Management treats their employees like cattle. Benefits are sub par and salaries are way below industry averages. No raises for non-managerial employees within the past 2years despite new business. Borderline abusive practices by hiring interns, and paying them 11$ an hour to do full time work. Click-ish environment, seems more like a family business rather than being taken seriously based on merit. What a sad and disappointing experience. Managers only interact with their teams via email in most departments despite being literally two doors away and in the same physical vicinity. In other words, rarely any face-to-face conversations. Probably the worst job I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Include other employees in the conversation, there is a huge waste of human brain power @this place. There are so many talented people at your office sitting right below your nose, humble yourself and look for the untapped potential to improve your struggling business.

    Pros

    Great assistant to CEO, gets everything done. Management is available to employees and open to growth.

    Cons

    IT is lacking in general. Most services are out sourced to third parties so it is difficult to get support when problems arise.

    Pros

    It has good people working there, opportunities and good work balance. I recommend to anyone looking in this industry to check it out.

    Cons

    I do not have any negative things to say. It is a business that gives opportunity to those who make an effort to advance. The industry is competitive and rewards those who strive to achieve.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Ability to take licensing exams. Decent work/life balance (9-5). You can learn both sides of the market if you're willing.

    Cons

    Vision does not compete on salary. Upper & Mid management is a joke, and leads through fear. Company will not spend money to increase team sizes, and as a result, departments suffer with larger work loads. CEO is two faced.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and realize that the company faults lie with leadership, or lack thereof.

    Pros

    The employees are good, allow you to take tests, you do everything, good please to learn (as long as you tech yourself).

    Cons

    Low Pay, Benefits Package is abysmal, no motivation to do a better job

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money to retain good employees with knowledge, rather than hiring interns and kids straight out of college.
