I worked at Street Capital Financial full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good salary, benefits and potential bonuses. Good team atmosphere nationwide. Work hard/play hard philosophy.

Cons

Demanding, high stress, requires a great deal of diplomacy and problem solving, time management and rapid analysis. Not necessarily cons, but important things to note when considering a position there.

    I worked at Street Capital Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good potential for high income.

    Cons

    Street hires those with little, or no, experience in the industry as "Sr. Underwriter's". You'll receive little support as a new employee because the small group of die-hard underwriters, who have a good depth of experience, are already overworked.

    The hours, due to workload, are just...insane. Read: Sweatshop. You will likely not be paid the OT unless it's approved, but expected to work it. Overtime pay, when it is approved, is often not received on time. You may receive it months after the hours being worked.

    Interactions with management border on abuse. There used to be threats of being fired actually written in emails, ask any ex-employee. I understand there have been changes in the management team, so cannot say if this is still the same.

    The HR team is small and also overworked. Expect slow turnaround on benefits being setup, overtime being paid, RRSP plan errors and no channel to lodge complaints.

    All of this creates an extremely negative working environment and leads to an extremely high employee turnover, bordering on legendary in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    In an attempt to heal the atmosphere, change the managers who directly interact with the front line employees.

    The volume is unmanageable. Adjust expectations.

    Treat staff with respect, and you'll get the same in return in the form of low employee turnover and increased success.
