    Pros

    +flexibility, respect, opportunity for growth both personally and professionally
    + if you have a passion for helping people and building relationships then you'll enjoy this job.
    + friendly upper management, I had terrific manager to turn to if i had any questsions or concerns or needed help running meetings, some of them will make the extra effort to see you succeed
    + great team atmosphere and co-workers
    +great job for visonary entrepreneurs
    +great benefits

    Cons

    - compensation can be better considering the hard work you put in
    - if you're straight out of college, it will be hard to make it, trying to build your book of business, being so young, some prospective clients might be hesitant to trust you with their money.
    - Outdated computers!
    - plenty of fees to just get started
    - no TVs, CNBC or Bloomberg going on in the Edison office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish management would be more thorough with their hiring process and not just hire anybody to just see if something sticks. The training program definitely needs to more robust.
