    I worked at Zacks Investment Research full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Everybody that works at the firm is extremely nice and easy to get a long with. They help you through the process to become the best you can be

    Cons

    Long hours, but the work pays off. This industry as a whole isn't for someone who is satisfied with steady compensation. This industry is for the hard worker that wants success. This industry separates the hard working from the very hard working.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    Advice to Management
