    Pros

    Great pay and management. They take into account the best interests of their clients rather than looking to make themselves richer

    Cons

    There are none. It is making me have a 20 word minimum for this answer but there are no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Again for some reason there is a 20 word minimum but I do not have any advice to managemnt, My advice to Glassdoor is not to have a 20 word minimum.

    I have been working at Stifel Financial full-time

    Pros

    This job provides a tremendous amount of learning and experience. They have jean days pretty often. There is a gym you can use for free. They provide benefits and a fair amount of PTO.

    Cons

    Seems to be lacking with technology, the pay is not the best, hard to advance, and each floor runs things differently.

    Pros

    Great executive leadership who is always looking out for the best interest of the clients and Financial Advisors. Open architecture platform that allows FA's to run their businesses as they see fit. Little to no bureaucracy within management.

    Cons

    401k match is a joke ($1000k dumped in at year end), health coverage is expensive. I was promised incentives that have yet to be delivered.

    Advice to Management

    Review benefits package to promote retention of talent.
