    I worked at LPL Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good technology in ways, albeit 20% of client tax reporting has historically been incorrect. How do they possibly screw that up so badly?
    Concept of rotation ETF model trading is nice conceptually, but generally with fumbled mediocre results.
    I worked there only until I could find a better job.

    Cons

    Company acts all altruistic and evangelical, espousing unbiasedness and empowerment to their underlying advisors, but then they fee their advisors to death and take retrocessions from approved manager solutions. Is this really unbiased? Way too much emphasis on illiquid assets with high initial commission payouts (think BDCs and non-traded REITs). They generally have no vision that a bear market is even possible. Employees are not paid well by Wall Street standards, so LPL gets a dumber general level of average employee (most of whom think that they are smarter than they really are -- a dangerous situation). This firm is likely to blow clients up in a time of market stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business model as it currently stands will not survive another 2008 style environment. More honorable & competitive firms are pecking at LPL's door. LPL needs to adopt a more risk-conscious investment attitude and attract more sophisticated employees by paying their people better. The firm is myopic in its persistent bullish market calls. Just go back and look at their calls at 2007 market peak. LPL's chief strategist was like the Pied Piper then leading retail investors to their slaughter.
