No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Investors Capital Holdings as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Looks good on resume, stipend for expenses

Cons

Sitting in a noisy room with a phone and millions of numbers and calling prospects with a pre-written pitch to sell stocks

Advice to Management

Teach interns something more than cold calling

This review is not of Investors Capital, it is of an independent office that utilizes the services of Investors Capital that was terminated by ICC.

    Pros

    Ability to work independently as well as on a team. Ability to conduct own research on various types of investments.

    Cons

    This company provides little to no benefits at all (Health, dental...) and the office in the new york firm is a miserable place to conduct business. 100% cold-calling for bringing in new business!

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest getting an office upgrade/make-over and try to expand business by other means than cold-calling. I would also consider increasing salary to recruit/maintain more talent.

    Pros

    Investors Capital Corp has a well recognized name with offices across the country. They cleared through Pershing which was definitely useful.

    Cons

    The compliance department could be a little difficult to deal with; and was absolutely no help during our Finra audit.
