Pros

It is a very conservative and safe company. They do not have a history of layoffs or job reductions. Safe bet.

Cons

The promotion process is not very slow due to the fact that the work force is not really that skilled within the company. It is very silo'd (sp?)

Advice to Management

More cross training and things that would broaden each individual associate experience within the company would be very beneficial. As is, the system does not allow for a comprehensive understanding of the business.

    Pros

    Senior management is committed to growing the business in a sensible manner, which has resulted in stability while other firms have blown up (Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, and Bear Stearns). The firm values its associates and encourages education and job growth. The firm's culture is very special and the workplace is very positive. The chairman's substantial art collection adorns the halls of the home office, which creates a museum-like environment. There are currently 3300 positions at the home office which allows for job opportunities.

    Cons

    In order to complete your responsibilities you sometimes have to put in extra hours. Your job satisfaction may be tied to how good your manager is.

    Advice to Management

    The senior leadership team is probably one of the best in the industry based on the performance of the stock, financial results, and accolades received (SmartMoney, Forbes, Fortune. Wall Street Journal). My only advice is to remain conservative in your policies as you grow the company.

    There is not a lot of room for growth, there is a lot of open favortism, it is not what you know, but who you laugh and joke with.
