How support staff is expected to manage the personalities of the people that we work for b/c mangent doesn't want to deal with them. Compensation is not good. Unrealistic expectations of what can be accomplished.

Internal Communication

Because this Firm is so highly regulated, you will spend a portion of your time taking required surveys and tutorials.

What I like about the company

Benefits; people; diversity.

What I dislike about the company

Whenever you are in a company this large, no matter how great the Firm may be as a whole, it all boils down to your direct manager. If they are great, you'll be great. If they aren't, you may be in trouble - not them. Also, as a financial services firm, they are more concerned with the top earners than your average citizen or employee.
