Working in 'Silo's'/Different depts was the biggest issue
QA Analyst- IT (Former Employee) – Philadelphia – March 12, 2018
Different departments didn't interact much at all, which made the overall culture stay in a constant state of fluctuation. Some departments worked really hard together and others played favorites with certain individuals and barely got anything done.
Managers and supervisors were willing to listen to issues, whether anything was done about them or not. New ideas were always at least considered, and the people in certain 'silo's' were fantastic; just not the upper management. They often made promises and didn't follow through.
And after many years there, pay raises seemed highly unfair. New employees often got far greater salaries and bonuses than people who worked there really hard for years.
The CEO was a fantastic leader, approachable and strong, but the "lower peons" were never allowed to actually speak to him, even when he was willing and happy to be accessible.
Lastly, the HR department had some fantastic people and some completely terrible people mixed in, which made it difficult to move forward.
Flexible schedules and coworkers of the same level were great
Almost impossible to get a raise unless you were a favorite of upper mgmt

It was very fast pace and management did not care about the workers, They were very clickish and played favoritism to certain people. First place I ever worked for where they complained if people worked to clean items up on their own time. This was because they feared law suites from HR from prior employees.

Service Desk Analyst I (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 19, 2017
This place literally had a revolving door and for good reason. They hire people on contract with promises of being FTE and actually getting the salary they deserve but ensure that you never make it that far.
Fun , loving environment. Respectful and treated like a person . Was able to meet a lot of people and talk to people all over the world..
Trader (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 14, 2017
Janney was a fun loving caring work place. I was treated fairly and treated like a person not a number. I had a great group of co workers that all supported and covered for each other if need be. I would recommend anyone who is looking to work in a fast paced environment and loves to meet and talk to various people throughout the day to apply for janney.
Free lunches, great benefits.. flexible if you have issues outside of work they work with you .
Summer Intern (Current Employee) – Osterville, MA – September 6, 2017
Work is never the same thing every day, its constantly changes as you acquire more and more clients. I learned all about trading securities, analyzing stocks, bonds, and mutual fund performances. I learned how to propose portfolios with the correct asset allocation for clients who either wanted a more goal focused portfolio or if they wanted to leave another firm to hold assets with us. Hardest part of the job is just keeping everything you have to do per day organized and prioritized. Keeping people calm during financial crisis or times of uncertainty is also a challenge. Most enjoyable part is getting close with the clients and being more than just a financial planner, but a friend as well.

Great place to work. The environment was open and friendly and provided a chance to feel comfortable working with others. The days weren't as stressful and there was a good pacing of work throughout the day.
Sr. Private Client Assistant (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA 17601 – June 27, 2016
