No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Zacks Investment Research full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are some good guys that work for the company and are very easy to get along with.

Cons

IT Management has compound issues. IT is split between 2 departments with no over-recing goal of actually improving the company. Management drives out competent talent or fires them for wanting to do job correctly. Those that are qualified and stay get stifled and just do bare minimum to make it bearable. IT constantly battles with business instead of tryin to support nd make things better. I.E. - making poor choices and not growing but stagnating so goals cant be met.

Advice to Management

IT Management just needs to change, the two individuals that are currently running are not equipped to do so.

    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
