    Client satisfaction the goal of advisors, more paperwork the goal of home office

    I worked at Waddell & Reed


    The people are great
    Good way to start a career


    Home Office introduces and changes paperwork frequently, resulting in excessive NIGOs and having to go back to the client, which severely diminishes the client experience. It is difficult to provide the best possible client experience when we have to jump through the hoops that are only convenient for Home Office and do nothing to provide more value for the client.
