    I worked at Zacks Investment Research full-time

    Pros

    I have been with Zacks Investment Management just under a year starting as a hourly temporary employee as a WMA (Wealth Management Associate). I was brought on Full Time after 7 months on Jan 1st 2015, and promoted to the Operations Wholesale & Retail department after 5 months in June 2015. So in just under a year I have been able to go from a temporary employee, to full time,

    Cons

    1K of up to 3% and tenured after 3 to 7 years is pretty much standard for most established companies in general, and would sh

    Pros

    These are some of my favorite people in the world. It is a true pleasure walking into the office.

    Cons

    No leadership is the main problem. We are 18 divisions under one umbrella and sometime we get rain without enough cover.

    Pros

    The working hours are very flexible. Work environment is suitable for girls especially married ones.

    Cons

    Salary sucks !!...As the work pressure is growing there is no salary increment !!....Also the salary structure for different qualifications vary. People working for more than 3yrs work against the same salary.

    Advice to Management

    Please see to the salary structure. People here work with quite high pressure, the salary standard should be pushed up.

    Lots of Opportunity to Move Up, but your salary may make you a target if you get too high.

    I worked at Zacks Investment Research full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting Work, Interesting Industry. I would recommend this company to a friend if they had an offer for a job that they find interesting and if it would be an advancement for them vs. their previous position.

    Cons

    Virtually everyone I knew there who had a significant idea for a product or service expansion had the idea or product taken away from them, ostensibly so that the upper management could keep whatever profits came of it, but none of those things ever came to anything, and multiple people have left and formed or joined thriving companies in related investment space. Do not go there if you are giving up significant salary, benefits or anything else that is important to your relationship.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how you could have kept the best and the brightest of those who have left, and become successful in their own, or other firms. The Koch Brothers call it Market Based Management, and look at how successful they have become.
