Pros

Great comparative salary & benefits. People are very nice. Personal Chefs in the Bond Market cafeteria. General job security. Was kept very busy.

Cons

Not much inter-departmental movement. Hard to move from one area to another. A ridiculous amount of finger-pointing when something goes wrong and no one takes responsibility.

Advice to Management

Hire more from within the firm, this will reduce the turnover of younger employees- they'll have something to work for in order to look forward to, and will build company loyalty the longer they work there.

    Pros

    Great food - the kitchen downstairs was top notch. Even though the food was not free (heavily subsidized by the firm), it was worth every penny. Kudos to the chefs!

    Cons

    Training - what training? Oh, you wanted training? Good luck with that.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like the peons we are. Look to Scottrade as an example of how to work WITH your associates. As oppose to working them to death.
