Financial planning is the right idea for today's consumer, execution isn't always there

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsIn concept, the financial planning model is ideal, especially in this economy.
The overall business model of a broker/dealer, asset manager and insurance company makes sense as the three elements support each other.

ConsNot all the advisors are true financial planners, and even those that are can't always handle too much complexity.
Senior management is too disconnected from the rank in file organization.
By distancing themselves from the insurance element of the business, they're missing a great opportunity to bring balance to client portfolios through guaranteed accounts and the tax and saving benefits of whole life insurance.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more visible across the organization on a day to day basis. Learn from the time you spend in the trenches, and use that insight to help guide corporate strategy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
