Cut-throat environment, not much learning as an intern

Pros

Great office space, in the heart of NYC, and a few good people who want to befriend you.

Cons

Cut throat environment, everyone is out to get promoted. People are generally uninterested in you, unless they can see that they can step on you to further their own growth and be noticed by the senior CFPs. As an intern, you don't really learn much, so you shouldn't let this go longer than a summer.

    Great company for a financial advisor to work with. Probably the best.

    Pros

    The company invests more in its advisors than any other company

    Cons

    You have to be a driven person to succeed in this business. First few years the pay is minimal compared to the work but in the latter years the pay exceeds most other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    For new advisors, invest more material into educating them in what exactly they need to do to succeed instead of loading them with excessive product knowledge at first.

    Pros

    Paid (minumum wage) four week training

    Cons

    Sitting eight hours a day training only on a computer. Phone calling eight hours a day required. only one eight hour day to have managing principal go on appointments with me in three weeks. Too many agents (22) for one managing principal to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Get more managers to help train agents. Do not shout at agents when they ask a question about the Gryphon system (Do not call lists). It is important to follow compliance and avoid a $11,000 fine to the agent and repercussions to the company.
