Very collaborative environment with multiple cross-functional teams.
Although a smaller company, management tends to keep its distance from employee involvement/dissemination of information to gain better employee buy-in on projects lacking details.
This is a slippery slope; all are kept tabs on indirectly, even individual contributors.
Could be better and could be worse which is typical of management centered companies.
Modern, recently updated with adjustable desks, better chairs, modern equipment in break rooms, great lighting and open spacing.
This is a great company on the verge of huge breakthroughs in retirement planning. Executive leadership wants to work with the voice of the employee, drive for efficient operations and keep the employees happy. The company offers great perks for working there, starting with the office environment and its modern, open feel.

They included us on alot of information about the growth process, best practices, and suggestions from employees on how to make things better
Virtually no training for anyone new to the field of investments, the training "staff" is basically one person with no time to train new employees, if you have no background, or are expecting to be "trained" look elsewhere
