The culture - entrepreneurial and challenging.

Downers

Lack of true coordination amongst professionals.

If a candidate is solely looking for high pay, this is not the place to land. The firm offers a creative culture that is not back-stabbing and to many of us, that is a better fit.

My company takes its fiduciary responsibilities to the customer very seriously. If you're in the business to squeeze the customer, go somewhere else. If you're looking for a good place to make money by helping others make money, you'll be all right.
