    I have been working at Investors Capital Holdings full-time (More than 10 years)

    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!!

    Don't just think you do, but actually talk and listen to all of the employees, not just your friends, and not just fellow managers.

    Investors Capital Corp has a well recognized name with offices across the country. They cleared through Pershing which was definitely useful.

    I worked at Investors Capital Holdings full-time

    Pros

    It was a great company that took care of it's employees.
    The company gave plenty of chances to junior employees to establish themselves and grow.
    Always plenty of interesting work to be done.

    Cons

    The company was not profitable.
    Many within the company have Inferiority complex.
    The management team was very reactive.
    The company is now closed so I can't work there any more.

    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.

    This review is not of Investors Capital, it is of an independent office that utilizes the services of Investors Capital that was terminated by ICC.
