    Pros

    Great place to start a career. Unless you already have a book of buisness or a large network of individuals who do not currently have a FA, it is difficult to grow. But this is fairly standard when trying to become an FA.

    Cons

    no real downside, if you build a good size book of buisness, I would recommend turning independent for better payout.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work JIM

    Pros

    Ample resources, training, and support.

    Cons

    Disorganized, no advancement, no reward for hard work, and upper management is unappreciative of staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of staff and reward them when they exceed your expectations instead of criticizing them when they don't.

    Pros

    Great benefits, Fortune 500 company with a lot of variety. Many different roles available for recent grads.

    Cons

    They look outside the company for many senior level positions when they have qualified individuals with a better understanding of the business unit and current processes available.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees to retain talent, hire from within

    Pros

    Good pay and a stable work environment

    Cons

    Management is terrible, culture is terrible. Not unusual to hear yelling on calls between different groups. Company changes so slowly that it's hard to improve the company or make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Management has no interest in listening to employees or improving IT.

    Pros

    A company with a strong leader. Its focus on financial planning leads to good advice given to its clients.

    Cons

    The home office sometimes forgets the unique challenges of franchise offices in remote areas. They need to remember not all offices work the same or will give the same result.

    Pros

    None that I can think of at this time

    Cons

    Commision based so you are totally dependent on selling product to customers. You are constantly being asked to sell certain investments for higher commision. The focus is on selling so the client becomes a second reason. It involves a lot of cold calling and getting people to talk to you. I absolutely hated it.

    Advice to Management

    Need to change focus to the client and pay the advisors a base salary and a certain percentage commision based on targets.
