    Pros

    CEO and COO are leaders, not bosses. They stake their reputations to make the right decisions with investment management rather than to just make money for themselves at the expense of their clients. There is a reason why they are growing fast, that the median age advisor is below thirty but are regularly outperforming older more "experienced" advisors elsewhere. Clients are truly clients and everyone is inspired to perform.

    Cons

    Still a small and growing firm, may not have the brand name recognition yet but I think this is only a matter of time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The management is receptive and responsive to changes and improvements to employees and clients.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gerber Kawasaki.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called two days later for a Group Interview. Got there and there were about 20 individuals. We all sat for a 1 hour long presentation from Kawasaki and Gerber and afterwards we each were called by the interviewers (one being Danillo Kawasaki himself). Interview was extremely short, they decide whether they like you or not in the first minute. I was grateful to be called back for a second interview, which was the next morning at 9:30. ABout 8 individuals were called back. For an hour and a half we discussed the salary and commission schedule and required certifications and trainings. Then they called us back for individual interviews (longer than the day before). Overall great great company and interview process, it ultimately ended up being not right for me.

    Reasons for Declining

    I determined this was not the company to start my professional career, although I would not sway anyone away from applying. Its a GREAT company with amazing individuals. It just wasn't right for me.
