A good place to start a career in the industry

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Pasadena, CA (US)

ProsExcellent benefits and competitive pay. Overall, a wonderful business culture to work in, especially for a company in the wealth management industry. I was fortunate to be able to work with some very talented people in my department where it was extremely team-focused and I never witnessed any backstabbing or individual competition within my particular group. Great place to network, and very open to promoting from within.

ConsExecutive managers did not come across as very approachable. Many people I knew who worked in certain departments had never met or seen the CEO, even though we all worked in the same office building.

Advice to Senior ManagementExecutive level management should be more visible to the employees -- not just with your senior managers, but everyone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
