    I worked at John Carris Investments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid on time and that is once a month for commission. The company is always open to work long hours
    its located on Wall Street by the NY stock exchange
    Management goes out of their way to make sure its a good work environment. Everyone works long hours but its not an overly stressful place.
    they do have tv's to watch while you work

    Cons

    Didn't help learn how to sell.
    Your more or less on your own.
    very high turnover almost nobody will last over a year

    Advice to Management

    You should believe in & invest some time and money into your employees.

    Pros

    A new office which is very aestheticly pleasing, located in the heart of the financial district.
    Very tech savvy, all Mac office.
    Small firm so you have easy access to management.

    Cons

    An alll Mac office (a negative for PC folks).
    Wall Street location not liked by some...post 9/11.
    Small firm not well known. Senior Management micro-manages.

    Advice to Management

    The road to success is typically a long one...a marathon, not a sprint. Don't rush to grow too fast. Maintain a high level of standard for employees and that they are qualified for their role.
