    "one terrible place on the earth"

    Current Employee - Senior Manager

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    lots of open source technology
    a few good tools
    constantly trying to reduce the overhead towards technology - like the whole site is running on tools of no dollar spent.

    Cons

    there is a lots of gang and groupism at the management level. The management hat is misused to throw away people that dont fall in line with management especially teams like build and release. Demonstrates completely unprofessional and unethical practices. Unfortunately, senior management is deaf to complaints because you cannot cross over the barrier. The bonus and salary hike stays with a few individuals that are whims and fancies to local management. This place is a great example of atrocity and bureaucracy in IT industry. The people that are sincere, are treated like commodities. You have to work on public holidays because the guys running the management feel, they own your personal life. Since the whole thing operates like a solid ring, there is no way, you can get in and do something professional. This place should be inspected by Department of Labor for fair practices

    Advice to Management

    not much to say as enough has been said in the cons section. Someone higher up, should really come down and investigate the site before DOL looks at it.

    Pros

    They will pay you while you train to get your seven and sixty-three license. Paid days off for market holidays.

    Cons

    Call Center environment. Be prepared to feel like you have no control and you are constantly micromanaged. You are not a broker at this place, you are a glorified phone monkey.

    Advice to Management

    While it is constantly preached to help the client, currently the only thing that matters is identifying clients that have additional assets to bring in.
