Fund Accounts Specialist (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – August 26, 2016
Fun & Productive work environment, Company is downsizing due to pushing jobs overseas. Loved working in Main Office Services, handling suspended trades, requests for specific reports for back offices, manual processing, handling research on omnibus accounts to review accounts and determine why they are out of balance. Handled incoming and outgoing calls to the back offices as well as gave requirements and paperwork required for legal transfers. My co workers and Supervisors were wonderful to work with. The best part of my job was researching and determining why accounts were out of balance and training my team mates on specific processes,
Good working environment w/ reputation for tenured employment.

It is a great place to work for! Great benefits, great culture, and great work/life balance. Depending what department you're in will determine what your schedule is like but it is generally 9-5 job. I can't speak for all managers because they all manage differently but I haven't had one that does not know what they are doing or does not care. They all care, they just each have a different management style.

Confidential (Current Employee) – Confidential – July 21, 2016
I joined many years ago. Great location. On site gym, on site Cafe, Grocery store, coffee, restaurants across the street. Some Flexibility in hours depending on group. Great co workers. Great management. I survived the big lay offs in 2008. Moral still good afterwards. Then new management for my group. All started going down hill. Another round of layoffs in February and still laying off here and there. Any sense of job security is gone. This round of lay offs seemed to target those they wanted to fire, but also those who had been there too long and cost too much. Now I know why there aren't many older people there. Not sure many retire here. More like forced out I feel. Also my group has never offered much training. They give you work and tell you to figure it out. Also we have no vision of this new management. No clue what they do. They have no clue what we do. The moral has went down the drains. Many are leaving for other jobs.

This is a family environment, inside a huge corporation. I can not believe how much I learned, and how much they were willing to teach me. Training was six weeks and for it was great training. Even if you know nothing about investments, you will come out knowing and ready to service the customers.
Fun place to work with many employees, cafe and gym on site
