Started off as a good company but went downhill
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  New YorkOctober 7, 2015
Typical broker dealer. Management made horrible decisions and hurt the people working for them. Mostly cold calling and trading bonds and stocks.

Highly competitive atmosphere
Wealth Management Intern (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 7, 2012
A typical day at HFP is one in which all the brokers are working constantly to acquire new clients. The atmosphere is like that of a boiler room: phones are ringing off the hook, conversations on the phone last between 10 seconds and 10 minutes, and all the employees work tirelessly throughout the day, only taking a break for a short period of time. I learned much about a sales based job here. I cold-called many individuals of high net worth. I connected brokers to prospective clients, filled out client sheets, and researched trends in the market. The hardest part of the job was trying to keep a client on the phone long enough so that a broker could come and make the pitch. I learned information on bonds and how they operate in the market. The best part of the job was working with other young aspiring brokers in a team environment, yet also extremely competitive.
