    I have been working at Monex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers are incredible. It really feels like a family here. I feel as though this family run organization really cares about its employees. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Monex is very traditional in how it operates. I know that management is working on updating its decor as well as its business processes but it is slow moving.

    I have been working at Monex full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A medium-sized family owned business that treats their employees like family members. It reminds me of the way many companies used to treat their employees back in the 1960's through the 1980's. A few employees have worked there for more than 40 years and several others have been there for 20+ or 30+ years.

    Cons

    Although the company has approximately 175 employees, there is not a lot of opportunity for advancement. Newport Service Corporation is the back office for two sales organizations that are housed in the same building, i.e., Monex Precious Metals and Monaco Rare Coins.

    Advice to Management

    Convert your profit sharing plan to a 401k plan so that your employees can make their own contributions.

    Pros

    Great people and management to work with. Lots of leads and opportunity. You definitely get out what you put in. You can make a lot of money.

    This is not a job for people without ambition and drive. The market can be stressful.

    None that comes to mind.

    Hiring Manager/Trainer Sean Brazney is the best manager I've had the opportunity to work with.

    Very good opportunity to make a good living and everybody has the exact same chance to succeed.

    Professional environment with top tier talent.

    Cons

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance. Supportive management. Great benefits. If I moved back to the area they would be my first stop!

    Cons

    Can be slow as far as work to do when the markets are slow.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with more busy work for the days with nothing to do.

    Pros

    Great organization to work for. I enjoyed everyday that I worked for the company. I would highly recommend this organization.

    Cons

    I've been in management for quite some time and I wouldn't change anything about my experience. It was a pleasure to work with such a great group of men and women.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow a culture where ideas can be freely expressed. A company that values the input of its staff and continues to listen will have great success.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Every day is different and challenging. CEO and family is down to earth.

    Cons

    Sometimes stressful due to market volatility. If you do not like this kind of an atmosphere, I would not recommend this company. Very traditional in its policies and culture. This could be a pro if you like structure and professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Increase mobility within the organization.
