Worked there 6 years and although fired unexpectedly would qualify it as a good place to work.

Financial Consultant (Former Employee) Denver, CO (US)

Pros- Good work/life balance.
- Good pay.
- Encourage educational opportunities.
- Senior management conducts frequent employee meetings.

Cons- Management has a somewhat phony "openness".
- Power and decision-making very centralized.
- Poor accountability.
- If you're not promoted within 3 or 4 years, probably never going to be.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to give more decision-making and authority to front-line employees and managers actually doing the job. Understand you don't know everything and that's OK. Nobody does.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
