Pros

They did paid me to get my series 7 & 63. The vacation time is good.

Cons

The pay is really bad. They are all about the negative and you are never told about the positive. Can you say Micro-Managers that get really excited about their name tag and "power".

If you are licensed then stay away. If you don't have your license, leave after you get it.

Advice to Management

Not everything is a metric and a number. If you didn't focus on each individuals number, those individuals might actually spend time to work with other departments to get things done. There is too much turnover, I am tired of being one of the few people that can actually get something done, because everyone else is too new or too stupid.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The innovative culture gives you opportunities to continue with the process improvement. Internal transfers can broaden your work experiences and strengthen customer focus.

    Cons

    The work place environment overly depends on competition, which reduces cooperation amongst varying departments and ranks. Also, employees are constantly in the dark, there are too many secrets.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your employees with better incentives/rewards, you can start by adopting best practices from 10 companies Best Places to Work. Stop managing people by fear, otherwise it will continue to drive away your best talent.
