  1. Clueless top management, huge egos at the top all squabbling for position

    Pros

    Nice people in mid-lower management

    Cons

    Too many huge egos, too little financial services experience.

    Advice to Management

    The constant power battles at the top need to stop.

  2. Made to work in ways that were not customer, but profit centric

    Pros

    It's easy to shine or keep up as many of the staff lack basic business skills - right up the ladder

    Cons

    Profit is the only focus and the profit gets paid to a small number of people. In a year when record profits arrived, staff got a 2% pay rise, but the UK MDis reputed to have earned $1m according to reports on the net...

    Advice to Management

    If you plan and actually have, and share a 5 year plan, customers might feature as being important and so prop depuis be proud of best they do

    Pros

    Expansions bring with it good opportunities for personal development and also travel internationally.
    There is minimal management interference in your day-to-day work load and you just left to 'get on with it'. While this may not suit most people it is a refreshing change for me.

    Cons

    Legislative changes may kerb the current business model and things cold change overnight.

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings....more doings.....

    Pros

    Great support from managers, allow to make mistakes and hold accountable for success. Distance work, sometimes from home is appreciated.

    Cons

    For some manager the salary does not matches the level of responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the great support and opportunities for developing professional skills. Think that in the long run you get what you pay for, and it wold make sense to develop compensation schemes that will retain valuable employees. If you look around you will see that "the good ones" leave after some time.

  10. Excellent place to work, rich leadership, supportive and guiding mentoring, I love to work here!!

    Pros

    Open-mind culture, room for active participation, innovation is rewarded and welcome

    Cons

    Time schedules can be tiring due to differences in timezones if you work in a managerial position

    Advice to Management

    Focus a bit (currently inexistent) on perks and bonus as means to motivate profesional engagement and improve results. You will see what motivated people can do. Average reward cultivates average performers.

    Pros

    Work with great part-time people who are just trying to get by. They did pay the MSP for only working 20 hours, this was okay.

    Cons

    Some leaders I found to be very good and others were simply horrible. It all starts at the top and rolls down. It also sucks having to take money from those on CPP....like they are already not broke enough.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for more frontline opinions and trust they know your customers better than you think they do.
