Great company/solutions, quality benefits, somewhat high turnover

Financial Consultant (Former Employee)

ProsGreat benefits
1 Month Sabbatical for every 5 years worked
Good products to sell, including SMA accounts, wrap accounts and insurance products.

ConsOutdated performance review metrics led to a near complete turnover of several offices in the area.
Can you afford to take a sabbatical for one month if your performance is judged quarter by quarter?

Advice to Senior ManagementPerformance reviews should be more aligned with retention and long term performance, including retention of clients currently enrolled in managed account products

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
