    I worked at Morgan Keegan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Morgan Keegan is employed with great people, and it was a very fun place to work. There were many different employment opportunities and room for growth. Great company outings and meetings.

    Cons

    My position was to slow-paced and I seemed to be very bored throughout the day. I would have liked working there if I had been more busy with my work throughout the day. I also felt like it was not a very flexible job. It was strictly 8-5, which is not very good to raise a family

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management would be to try to incorporate a little flexibility. I also would ask the management to make sure each employee has specific duties that are meaningful for the company.

    Pros

    Good culture. The people were great. The work-life balance, at least in my department was really good. It was relatively low stress while I was there. I enjoyed my co-workers. Senior manager was very nice, although I didn't get the feeling they knew exactly what they were doing.

    Cons

    Seemed very chaotic and unorganized. Upper management took a good old boy approach it seemed.
