Pros

Some people are very knowledgeable about the industry and are great to work with because they are wiling to share their knowledge. However, you need to be proactive. People don't readily share information.

Cons

High turnover and senior management's view that new blood is good for the business. Does not develop people once you're in. There are dead weights who are there to just collect a paycheck and has no growth potential which impedes the growth of the group and ultimately the firm.

Advice to Management

Recognize those with talent and can be groomed for internal growth. High turnover in any group should be sign to senior management that the person in charge may not be the right person leading the group. Stability and growth cannot be achieved when there is high turnover and lack of recognition to those that can help firm achieve its goals.

    benefits, free drinks, holiday party, can usually leave by 6-6:30pm, not much else

    no career growth
    stupid people promoted if favorites
    investment professionals higher class citizens

    lots of turnover

    Advice to Management

    career growth is key. dont take away from benefits or free drinks. only thing you have going once someone is mid-career. give people opportunities to interact with management more, and not just favorites.

    Current Employee - Great Benefits- But Work Somewhere Else

    Pros

    great benefits
    free drinks
    a lot of people have been there along time
    good holiday party
    nice office

    Cons

    no career advancement; people have been there for so long, you get stuck because your manager hasn't left
    pay must be good at the top (why else would people stay), but not good on bottom/once you're stuck
    management doesn't know what they are doing- the more they meet with hr, the worse they seem
    a lot of turnover in certain groups

    Advice to Management

    find ways to reward people-- more responsibility/more money/money something
    be wary of how managers treat other employees. they don't know what they are doing and hr doesn't seem to help
