    Pros

    ICC is a family. Most of the staff has been here a long time. The Management Team has done a good job trying to manage the change that came with acquisition. The dedication and commitment of the CEO should be recognized. Let's be honest, he could leave and find something better but he stays and continues to fight for his team!

    Cons

    Change is one thing and ICC has managed it well over the years. Having to manage to lies from people at the parent company level is another. ICCs CEO is a good man who continues to fight for his staff through the most difficult of changes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change who you are as a person - at the core. You will have no regrets!!

    Great home office support, technology platforms and no proprietary product pressure. High payouts for individual branches that pay their own expenses. Part of the second largest independent broker channel under the RSC Capital (RCAP) family of companies which includes a nationwide independent financial advice network, a wholesale distribution division and investment research, technology, investment banking and capital markets businesses.

    Pros

    Sponser you for your series 7

    Cons

    you will be cold calling for 9-10 hrs a day with maybe a 30-60 min break, prospecting for clients who dont need more financial advice, reading off a shitty script that rarely works anymore, get your lisence and jumpy ship asap to a wirehouse

    Advice to Management

    teach trainees financial side of being a broker, not just being a telemarketer reading off a script

    I have been working at Investors Capital Holdings as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Looks good on resume, stipend for expenses

    Cons

    Sitting in a noisy room with a phone and millions of numbers and calling prospects with a pre-written pitch to sell stocks

    Advice to Management

    Teach interns something more than cold calling

    Pros

    Ability to work independently as well as on a team. Ability to conduct own research on various types of investments.

    Cons

    This company provides little to no benefits at all (Health, dental...) and the office in the new york firm is a miserable place to conduct business. 100% cold-calling for bringing in new business!

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest getting an office upgrade/make-over and try to expand business by other means than cold-calling. I would also consider increasing salary to recruit/maintain more talent.
