This company is dying a slow death. Its website, which is almost never updated, touts its pioneering of managed accounts, but the managed account products it offers are OKAY at best, while fees are on the high side. The company doesn't occupy a niche or have any inherent advantage or vision. The number of financial reps who use its services has been dropping steadily for years, as has the number of employees, now numbering less than 40. Vacated positions go unfilled since nobody qualified will work for the crappy pay and hostile office environment Capital Analysts offers. The senior vice president (not Bob Cogan) is a pedagogue with an overblown ego and a Napoleanic complex who lives by the management credo "The floggings will continue until morale improves." Communication between departments is virtually nonexistent. Employee morale isn't even in the toilet. It was flushed long ago, has gone through the sewer system and is now being processed at the municipal treatment plant.
The best thing that can happen is for the company to be put up for sale, which ultimately it probably will, but not before a few more years of idiotic mismanagement.
Pros: At one time it wasn't as horrible as it is now.
Cons: No vision, demoralized staff
