Small, but growing Broker Dealer w/ Interesting Culture
Compliance Analyst (Former Employee) – Del Mar, CA – May 5, 2015
Tucked away in Del Mar, IFG is a progressive little broker dealer with a unique and cult-like culture that prides itself on making employees abide to meticulous guidelines, and keeping the advisor happy. The employees are hard working and dedicated, management (depending on the department) can be a bit confused at times, as it is a growing company competing with much more resourceful entities, and abroad. Hardest part of the job was conforming to rules that weren't written, the best part was interacting with knowledgeable staff and assisting the reps. A typical day involved a mandatory hour lunch, lots of quiet time, and the occasional sweep of the office by the CEO. I learned how to work in a completely different corporate setting than that I was used to.
Nice area, long lunch, flexible with appointments, 401k match, etc.
Weird managerial inconsistencies, frequent staff changes, hard to please.
