    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Training is good for my entry level
    Consensus-driven culture (generally a good thing), whereby every decision is taken by committee, can sometimes lead to numerous back-and-forths and long decision times
    Dramatic company growth in the past couple of years (putting lots of pressure on infrastructure though)

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility, lack of personal growth, unclear, ill-defined career path. Some people in positions of power lack management skills
    Compensation and yearly raises are well below industry average
    Highly specialized roles with limited transferability
    Tedious work
    Turnover is high among junior employees.
    Very political
    Long hours

    Advice to Management

    none

    I worked at Capstone Investment Advisors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    seeing how things should NOT have to be. Understanding better what I do NOT want out of the job

    Cons

    Well, everything. Long hours, well below average pay. Lie about bonuses or for that matter what the job would entail. Misery and tears all around.

    Advice to Management

    management doesn't strike me as type of people who would give a hoot about employees as long as they are making $$

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Capstone Investment Advisors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unlimited opportunity to earn.
    No money has to be invested

    Cons

    Initial stage(Around 1 year) has to pass with peanuts

    Advice to Management

    Take serious people and moreover give training about trading research(Specially equity research) not only basic training along with software training.

    Pros

    Great people, flexible and professional. Rapidly growing and focused on growth oppurtunities

    Cons

    Administratively not in line with company priorities, Admin/HR staff lacks understanding of the work environment challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Great Company, but HR needs to be more responsive and adaptive to the contract environment.
