Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Zacks Investment Research as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good training ground for an entry analyst, while still in undergrad
Many opportunities to apply academic skills and test in real life experiences
Also, would not take this as a full time job unless you are really into researching
I am looking to be a trader, and it's great to pick up on some research skills, they offer many products for institutional investors

Cons

Not as open communication as desirable, between different sectors and framing a big picture of the market, even if on a weekly basis

Advice to Management

Connect all different sectors and synthesize info from each sector
Management can also be more helpful in terms of framework of researching
First couple of weeks could have been a lot easier in transitioning if a basic framework was recommended

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Pros- If you work hard and produce you can make a very good living. Senior management is very clear on what is expected of you and gives you the tools to achieve success. The ability to travel and present an ever changing product to the brightest men and women in the investment world.

    Cons

    Cons- There seems to be a lot of dead weight employees (as there is in every company) that can bring down morale in the office.
