Great place if you enjoy being under appreciated & over worked!
Retirement & Retail Specialist (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – August 4, 2013
Company has 2 sides : retirement Plans (401k) & retail services: (IRA, non company sponsored Accts, etc) both share 1 site however, culture & management influences make it seem like 2 very different companies. You will be over worked, under appreciated, & under paid UNLESS you fit in with the management fraternity club. At road shows VP's will preach one thing but don't dare attempt to implement any or bring it up to middle management, it's taboo. Middle management from the GM's down have a frat club, upper management from the DM's down have no clue about the trenches & don't want one. They preach "the client" but reallly mean "the business... So the messages are coded & hypocritical... You need to hear thank you for your hard work... Look to co-workers because in any & all coachings or 1x1's you will hear every tiny little thing the can find to deride you (per six sigma) & nothing you did well, even if you cosistently exceed matrix...don't trust a Sup as far as you can throw them, most are back stabbing, phoney, & looking out for their own...
more ot than you could ask for
management plays games & picks favorites right out of training
