Take care of their people with comp and benefits

Cons

Retail focus... second in line to institutional business
Paid 20% below street (but still paid well)
Management turning desk into agency business and a lot of red tape

Advice to Management

Be more transparent with employees
Better pay based on merit
Don't roll over into an agency desk

    Pros

    Recognizable Name and Company History

    Unlimited Sick Days

    Can advance career steadily but slowly without much brain power... just keep your head down and do as you're told.

    Great place to learn corporate politics

    Cons

    Preferential treatment for those with military backgrounds

    Innovation and free thinking is discouraged

    Corporate politics are necessary even with the smallest suggestions

    Advice to Management

    Look for interns or people just looking for a paycheck. People who are ambitious and looking to improve things in operations do not fit with your current management teams.

    Don't waste time hiring talented people for operations.
