Company Culture

Very collaborative environment with multiple cross-functional teams.

Support from management

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.

Freedom to work independently

This is a slippery slope; all are kept tabs on indirectly, even individual contributors.

Internal Communication

Could be better and could be worse which is typical of management centered companies.

Office / Work Environment

Modern, recently updated with adjustable desks, better chairs, modern equipment in break rooms, great lighting and open spacing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More open communications about projects, pending changes coming down. Some management pieces are not set to be disclosed to employees but certainly not to protect managment's own agendas.

What I like about the company

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.

What I dislike about the company

In Service Delivery, many people were brought in from another employer, starting with a higher up manager. These individuals already had a working relationship, bringing in a number of outside employees; not allowing for growth from within and leaving a bad taste in many employees' mouths.

What I like about the company

They included us on alot of information about the growth process, best practices, and suggestions from employees on how to make things better

What I dislike about the company

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
