    I have been working at SWS Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Successful company who knows how to treat their employees. Even in times of economic downtime, they did their best to give merit increases and bonuses. Managers do their job well and they do not micro manage. Pleasant working environement with great employees.

    Cons

    There is some room for growth and promotion, but not as much as you will get with larger companys. No workout facilities or the like for employees to de-stress during the work week.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SWS Group (Dallas, TX) in June 2008.

    Interview

    It was good. My only complaint....my salary was low balled. I realized that later when I found out my co-worker was making more.
