Pros

The vacation time is great and they even offer have options for insurance. They sometimes promote within and depending on your position you may be able to balance between work and family time.

Cons

They are only focused on investors and will do anything they can to show them they are growing. The pay is low and they love to do mass layoffs. If you are desperate for a pay check that pays more a little bit more than unemployment than this won't let you down. Why too many hurdles to jump when trying to get to get something done internally. Also, depending on your position you may never truly get a vacation because of the company’s expectations.

Advice to Management

Go back to being a private company and start caring about your employees again. Look into promoting within instead always going outside the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, outstanding training, generally really great people who care about the clients and thier teammates
    The very top leadership is great.

    Cons

    Put some emphasis back on the people and clients and forget about the stakeholders for awhile. I understand that as an investor you buy a stock to see it grow however there are other ways to provide a return than just managing the expense line to hit the numbers so the price appreicates.
     Its a relationship business and clients expect the teams to know and undertand thier businesses. The BU leadersneed to take a long hard look at the future of thier business in light of continually turning over relationship managers.

    Advice to Management

    Run the company for the shareholds with a long term view, not just the next quarter and then the quarter after that...
