    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, great starter job, availability to hop departments and become licensed. Excellent training programs.

    Cons

    10 people in line to replace you. You are 100% replaceable. Salary is not competitive and merit increases are laughable.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation - this needs to be realistic

    Good for someone right out of high school to get experience, but not a career

    Pros

    This company does have good health insurance and the retirement benefits are better than most.

    Cons

    There is a high school mentality that stems across the RPS department. If your not part of the click or the popular you aren't in line for any kind of promotion or any consideration even if you have the credentials to support it. Also, expect to be micromanaged and watched heavily and constantly. One last point, this is just another customer service job... Even if you are correct/accurate in your position the client will always be right and you are wrong...you never seem to be able to win. Pay is also about $5-$10k lower than competitors in the same industry.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of talented people out there but you will never now if you don't give your employees the chance and hire/promote based on how much you like them and if they fit your mold. One last suggestion, but stop micromanaging. For an institution who has such a high turn around, you be surprised how many people will stay and go above and beyond for you if you let them do the job you originally hired them to do.

    Pros

    Great benefits, professional and friendly culture, room for growth. Professional and self-development is important to leadership. Great place to start your career. Great training programs.

    Cons

    Low Salary. I think it is sad they are an investment firm that teach about the importance of out pacing inflation and annual merit increases are lower than 3%. You can not out pace inflation by staying in a position for longer than a year. You have to move around the company to have a significant salary increase. This makes it hard for leadership because of the turnover.

    Advice to Management

    You will need to increase annual merit increases if you want to retain talent.

    Pros

    Office complex is great. Benefits are good. Over atmosphere of the organization is ok. People that work at the location are friendly and willing to help.

    Cons

    It is very political environment. Management talks about how they promote from with, but that is a false front front. The organization does not take previous experience into account and how those skills may bring a fresh perspective and help the organization grow.
