    Pros

    Private company. Salary and variable compensation. Good benefits. Largest retirement company in the US. Full suite of investment options. Discount broker with full service capabilities.

    Depends on what department you work in. Expectations of goals that can be unattainable most times. High volume but expectations of personalized service don't always go hand in hand.

    Advice to Management

    Take in to account your employees strengths and look at building on to them so they can contribute in different ways, not everyone is of the same mold.
