Financial Representative (Former Employee), Jersey City, NJFebruary 10, 2014
Favorable working environment. Management and senior advisers work with you so you can succeed in the business. The most exciting part is helping your clients achieve their financial goals with the products and services you provide to them.

Wealth Management - high turn over in sr. mgmt, low morale
Business Analyst, Investment Platforms (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 6, 2014
Pros –

Great name to have on the resume. Get to work with many very talented and motivated people. Nice gym.

Cons –

1) Most senior managers who lead the integration of MS and SB have been forced out or quit.

2) Wealth mgmt corporate office culture is WASPy and self-serious (i.e.non client-facing mid-level executives sporting obnoxious pinstripes, – more... pink french collar shirts and ridiculous cufflinks).

3) Pay has been stagnant for the last 3 years. Most promotions do not come with pay bump, and in many cases a pay cut – less

Fast paced but supportive environment
Financial Analyst (Former Employee), London, ENGFebruary 2, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefits, supportive and friendly working life experience
Cons: can be fast paced and work can be dull in places
Daily tasks varied depending on the time of the month, learned lots about finance due to large amounts of training and support on offer. Co workers were largely friendly and helpful and networking was encouraged resulting in a fun social life. Nearing month/quarter/year end work could get hectic but expected in a fast paced London based job
