    Pros

    Unlimited comp for sales on the FC side I love it it makes me very motivated to work hard.
    I am happy my manager gives me the space to sell to the right clients. The clients that want and need advice. Many need advice but just do not want it so you need to sift thru to find someone that "gets" that putting all their money in a 12 cent gold mining stock will most likely not help them reach retirement with a good size nest egg.
    Given 200mm book to work with huge opportunity but can hurt you.
    A get the job done culture!

    Cons

    *Operations and TOA are way understaffed should have 30-50 people full time. E*TRADE could bring in an additional 10-25% or more in assets and retention if they refined this area in particular.
    * There should be a positive small revenue share on your practice/book that exceeds threshold or
    * Threshold feels more like a "steal take"
    *UMA needs a bond manager yesterday.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how other discounters execute operations and TOA then copy what they do well.
    I am not sure is Paul is wanting to grow us or sell us? I prefer grow there is an enormous opportunity to grab more market share from TD and Schwab.


  2. Young and dynamic company with endless opportunities for the brave and ambitious

    Pros

    Many opportunites to grow whithin. One can start at the bottom and with hard work and the right attitude can easily move up to more rewarding positions.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better. This industry requires talented people to innovate and stay ahead of the curve. Pay seems lower compared to other companies

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture as it is and design fairer compensation package throughout the organization. Identify key personnel that keeps the business running and the compensate them based on merit.
