Premier Service Group Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Woodside, CAMay 13, 2012
This firm will reward you the harder you work. In other words, it's not too hard to "shine" as an employee and move relatively quickly if you play the "game" right. Just make sure to follow the rules, do your job, do your job well, and you'll be in a good position to move vertically. It's a "walls down" type of environment where senior management is constantly around. So, it's not too hard to get noticed for all the right reasons (and the wrong reasons). Once again, play the game right.

Everyone seems pretty happy here. Benefits and pay are good relative to the industry. The firm also encourages horizontal movement across all departments. There's a good possibility that an employee's job in the next 5 years doesn't even exist yet since the company is still expanding. It's not tiny by any means; it's sizable. Innovation continues to take place giving it potential for growth.

The hardest part about the job is not knowing precisely what you need to do to get promoted. This concept is probably not foreign to people outside of this company. However, it would be nice if the career path wasn't so ambiguous.

I love the people and positive vibe in the company. It's nice to know that the majority of your life spent during the week is around people you can get along with. The money is good, too. The day-to-day progression of "moving the needle" is also exciting to experience.
Pros
transparency, good pay, growth potential
Cons
managers don't write recommendations, no tuition reimbursement

Competitive work place with opportunity to move up if you go along with managment philosophy.
Investment Counselor (Former Employee) –  Woodside, CANovember 13, 2017
The lower level managers are a joy to work for and support for investment counselors is good. Mid level managers still require a lot of training. Great employees and a fun place to work.

Decent place to start career if you don't mind long hours
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Woodside, CANovember 8, 2017
Fast paced work environment, which sometimes created issues with moving too fast and having to backtrack on projects, etc. Compensation was ok at higher levels but not at associate levels, especially in Bay Area. Long hours depending on your role, I frequently worked 12 hour days.
Pros
Young, fast paced company
Cons
Poor Work/Life Balance
