    Pros

    Nothing good about the company

    Cons

    Systems are lay back and management is not willing to invest in system enhancement. Staffs have attitude and rude ( especially those that are lower rank). Sale persons show no respect to the staffs and that explain high turnover rate. Sale persons are not proactive in managing their own/clients' trades and tend to push blame to staffs. Culture is bad. Management tend to treat staffs like school kids.

    Advice to Management

    Should invest in other industries instead of carry on stockbroking as there is no way to beat other firms. Sale persons are old and not making money.
