    Pros

    They offer a lot of opportunity. Some of the best people in the world work at Janney. There is a great family culture and everyone really cares about each other. There are so many opportunities for self improvement and great chances to network both within and outside of the company.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics and those who are given a lot of responsibility, who are not in management positions, are often taken advantage of and do not get the compensation they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve. Don't micromanage your best employees.
