    I worked at 1st Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1st Global is not your typical "financial services" organization. They are a forward thinking, mid-sized company that embodies a entrepreneurial mindset, encourages their employees to be creative, strives to be great to their prospective and affiliated firms and is constantly challenging the status quo. In my role, I built great relationships with my immediate team and also co-workers outside my department. With challenging but exciting work/responsibilities, I was able to enhance my strengths and even grow in other areas within my skill set. 1st Global also has various activities and outings monthly that are solely dedicated to employee engagement (one of my favorites was an outing to Top Golf).

    Cons

    Like any small - medium sized organization, some might say there is little room for advancement in some departments but 1st Global encourages employees to step up to the plate, take ownership and either advance their careers to different departments within the company or take on new, more challenging responsibilities.

    I have been working at 1st Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are very flexible and they let employees work from home. They also encourage employees to get licensed by paying for the testing materials and the test.

    Cons

    Some overtime is expected, especially during the busy seasons such as tax time and at the end of the year.
