    I have been working at Trilogy Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    FLEXIBILITY! Holidays "aren't paid" due to the fact that the employee gets to choose, is not told, when to use their rather generous amount of PTO. Hours are set but you have the ability to make up time missed if there is work to be done. Overtime is a rarity as Trilogy firmly promotes work/life balance. POSITIVE WORK PLACE! Negative energy is not welcomed. Trilogy management, in my opinion, strives to create an environment that is both professional and warm. Colleagues work collaboratively and efficiently. Laughter is a constant throughout the office. Trilogy truly wishes to create a workplace where employees feel part of a big family rather than a just a corporation. PURPOSEFUL WORK! In the recruiting department, it is our job to find individuals who will become an asset and contribute to the growth of Trilogy. In addition to those qualities, we search for people who will put others before themselves, can think outside of the box, have a strong work ethic, and a desire to commit long term to become part of something greater.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of room for growth in my department. However, with the growth of the company I'm optimistic that new opportunities will become present.

    I have been working at Trilogy Financial full-time

    Pros

    Lots of freedom. Great co-workers. Supportive managers. Lots of growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Ok, so I will agree that the starting wages for admin are low but I know that as people show knowledge and efficiency, wages increase pretty fast. If you are in it for the long haul (where you are looking to grow and be part of the bigger picture) and not just looking for a job for the now, this is the place to be.

    Advice to Management

    So the trips, bonuses, and other perks are great for the financial advisors but what about admin people? Thank you for the annual bonuses but I wish there was a way we could earn a bonus more often. An admin retreat would be great! =)

    I have been working at Trilogy Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Trilogy has been rated one of the top places to work in Southern California. It has a family culture and all of the employees that work at Trilogy are very friendly. The financial services industry is not a career for everyone but the management team at Trilogy are great and very supportive of their employees. The training program is top-notch and hard work is definitely rewarded.

    Cons

    There are no paid holidays

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    Pros

    Family Culture Friendly Employees Everyone knows your name, so you don't feel like just a number or a random person that works in a department Trilogy was a stepping stone for me. I got there, worked my butt off and it paid off. I left on good terms and now I'm in a position where I can grow. I wouldn't change it at all and working there taught me a lot. Just like with any position, you need to a. give it a chance to work and b. want to actually work. If you keep that in mind, Trilogy may be a great fit for you.

    Cons

    No Paid Holidays No room for growth, at least for my position

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and find creative ways to motivate your team

    The hours were great. The work environment was very pleasant and conditions were nice. The office décor was very classy and inviting.

    Pros

    Excellent enviroment to work, Trilogy provides employees with health benefits, 401k plus profit sharing and training for all advisors. The rich training allows a new advisor to grasp fundamentals of the Industry while experienced advisors have access to advanced training for their ongoing development, while encouraging them to continue the industry education with obtaining their CFP. Trilogy has many leads programs that help advisors with the development of clients, which include Dave Ramsey's ELP program. I look forward to many more years of continued success!

    Cons

    You must be willing to take responsibility for your own results.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing great work.... Providing opportunity for people!!

    Pros

    The Financial Services industry is a very difficult one to be in. The turnover is high as most new advisors fail due to having unrealistic expectations about what it really means to be a financial advisor. The hours are long, the highs are very high as the lows are very low and it will take you a long time to develop a successful, lucrative practice. You need to do a lot of research before you decide to enter this field but if you do, this is the best company to work for. The support you get toward staying educated and providing advice in building your business is second to none. If you work hard, listen well, stay patient and learn the practices that Trilogy has proven to work, you will succeed. However, that success WILL NOT come overnight.

    Cons

    The downsides are unique to working in the financial services business and really are no different from company to company. Anyone who tells you differently is mis-guided or mis-informed. Being and advisor is hard work, takes a long time and it doesn't come easy to anyone. It's commission based so there really is no salary to speak of so you're going to have to work hard and meet with a lot of people to make a decent income. They provide a starting salary option at first but it isn't a living wage but it is not designed to be such. It is designed to provide a minimum safety net and allow you to build your business while having something small on which to fall back. If you want to find a cushy job with a nice salary that doesn't require a lot of work, don't bother applying here. But if you want to work hard, help people and create a profitable business for yourself in the future, come talk to us! The health insurance is fine. The 401(k) doesn't have a match. A match would be nice but you're an advisor, it's your job to plan accordingly. There are ownership options upon advancement within the company but it isn't super lucrative until you've been there and been a good producer for a significant period of time.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of different managers that have a lot of different personalities that cater well to different types. Make sure that the new reps are paired with the right people for their personality and continue to provide a positive environment.
