    I worked at Euro Pacific Capital full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, great holiday parties. Investment strategies are sound.

    Cons

    Sadly this is a business that's swimming against the tide. Management was in denial, and I suspect this ship is nearly sunk.

    Advice to Management

    Be pragmatic

    I worked at Euro Pacific Capital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An entry level opportunity for brokers
    Leads from database generated by Peter Schiff & his media/marketing

    Cons

    Narrow choice of investment vehicles (only EP Funds and Managed Money RIA which are all non USA stocks and bonds. Literally missed 90% of USA market rally but caught all of downside of gold crash and international stocks meltdown. )
    No team spirit or camaraderie to speak of
    Terrible performance by Euro Pacific private placements, many in lawsuits or worthless

    Advice to Management

    Let Peter market and outsource all your asset management to a traditional pieshaped MPT allocation run by a big house

    Pros

    My coworkers were great to work with.

    Lack of job security. Since the CEO is panicking at the moment, everyone is uncertain whether or not they will have a job tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    What management?

    I worked at Euro Pacific Capital full-time

    Pros

    You learn how not to run a brokerage firm.

    Cons

    "Just because the doctor diagnoses the disease, doesn't mean they know the cure." Working there forced me to learn the int'l markets/economies and their interconnection with US markets. But what I learned caused me to realize that Peter is wrong.

    Platform is very low-grade and brokers are severely restricted from straying outside the Peter philosophy, even if it's in the best interest of the client.

    Watch your payout percentages! The numbers they initially gave me and what I was actually paid was much lower.

    Periodically, they do "client dumps". A client dump is when the big producing brokers dump clients on newer brokers. These clients have already been milked for their commissions, but now must be serviced. The big producers can't be bothered with providing service, so they dump these clients on newer brokers to service. It's genius, when you think about it!

    Advice to Management

    See a shrink...

    I worked at Euro Pacific Capital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress code. Lax atmosphere. Friendly coworkers. Interesting philosophy. Flexible hours. No micromanagement. You can get any license you want provided you study.

    Cons

    No raise ever. Ever. Very little upward mobility. Politics are ridiculous. Rewarded based upon how friendly you are with upper management- not Merritt. The lax atmosphere, dress, and hours creates this black hole of complacency. People stay in this job rut for years for lack of options or will to make a change. Horrible culture.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees. Give them a career path... Many in this company feel like they have a dead end job. Change in philosophy is also in order.

    3. Promises are unmet to their employees

    Advice to Management

    The lack of communication severely affects the quality of work that is done. Give more constructive crisitism (positive and negative)
