I worked at Convergent Wealth Advisors

Pros

Understanding of being a part-time intern and student. Will let me get off work early to attend review sessions, etc.

Cons

The Los Angeles office is a relatively new office so most of the work is still prospecting and the organization of the firm there is still premature, but it seems that it's not the case in their HQ.

    -Clarification of role as an intern needs to be explained to employees so they can take advantage of extra labor.

    I worked at Convergent Wealth Advisors full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    a very interesting client base, very smart research team, CEO Dave Zier is a well-intentioned, nice guy

    Cons

    Top heavy with senior management, none of whom (except Zier) are client facing. "Employees are are greatest asset" is a motto that doesn't ring very true when push comes to shove. Lockshin (founder) checked out a while ago. There is not a lot of trust in senior management. A lot of employee turnover in the past few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    rethink the role (or lack thereof) of the president, CFO, other non-revenue generating positions. Figure out what you are doing with Independence.
