Learned the basis of investing in the stock market
Finanncial Training Program Intern (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: the vice president is super nice and is great to network
Cons: lots of assignments
Everyday we learned different stock market techniques from our Vice President of Global Wealth and then we had workshops that delved into those. We had several side projects in conjunction with our stock market assignments to understand the workings of the economy and the stock market. The hardest part of the job was the late hours after a long day – more... of class. The most enjoyable was learning about the stock market while making new friends! – less

Great Learning pool, warm and friendly work environment
Mutual Fund Senior Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 21, 2014
Pros: free coffee and incentive awards
Cons: outsourcing entire areas offshore
A typical day log into call center or if reconciling uploading your fund descrepancies for the day.
I learned how to utilize a variety of new system applications, also had the capabilities to cross train into new areas.
Overall co-workers were friendly made some life long friends.
Hardest part of the job when working in the call center is the large – more... call volume.
The most enjoyable part was being able to resolve a huge issue for a financial advisor and/or client – less

Great Starting Job, Tough for Real Advancement
Senior Service Representative (Current Employee), South Jordan, UTJuly 7, 2014
Pros: good work environment, good compensation for this type of job.
Cons: no real raises and very hard to get real advancements that pays more.
The section I worked at was the call in Service Center. It is a good pay for a starting job. People call in for help with information, logging on to the site, help with cards and checks as wells as many other general items.

I gained skills and responsibility in the hopes of job security, advancement, and better pay, such as Series 63 and series 7 licencing – more... as well as worked tax questions. There were not any real significant pay raises even after taking on these responsibilities. Any "advancement" to another department was a "lateral move" and didn't really increase pay. The only way to make more funds was to either switch to the night team, as I did, or to work over time, if it ever was available.

Expect it to be a good call center job with all that entails from that. – less

Financial Training Internship (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 2, 2014
Pros: nice building

If this is how much you can learn from an internship, you should apply now. First of all, training is the most important part in this internship. Learn stocks, market, bonds and SSN.
