Pros

Great stability of you're good at what you do. The emphasis on career development is placed on the individual, but with the knowledge that help is encouraged and expected at the leader level.

Cons

Compensation strategy is murky, not enough transparency to all associates. We're told job grades are average to the market yet we never see the market studies.

Also, the firm is very conservative so if you come in hoping to make broad stroke changes quickly you'll be frustrated... quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to try new things and abandon those that have worked in the past but no longer do. Conserve the culture with an eye towards future.

    Pros

    Work here if you are an outgoing, diligent, sales-oriented person who has a passion for investments and tends to be able to gain influence with others. There is unlimited potential for those who do the work and can handle consistent rejection. Also, the company pays a modest salary and provides training for brokers during their first year.

    Cons

    You really have to be self-motivated and able to handle the trials of this job on your own. You can ask for help and support at any time, but you do have to ask. Four months after you are fully licensed as a broker, you must meet your commissions or start looking for a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our senior management are some of the finest people you will ever become acquainted with. They really take the time to get to know each new person coming in and to make sure all the support systems are in place for that person. Another great thing is that, unlike in most other places I've worked, senior management actually wants to get to know each person individually and really values honest, candid communication.

    Pros

    The support of knowledgable co-workers. Everyone shares in each others success. The single broker office business model cuts out the office drama and if you like to work and go to work to get work done each day, the environment is excellent.

    Cons

    The current economic adjustment is challenging . Reminding customers of the risks and the importance of long term holdings is important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the support and the people available to assist at times of uncertainty.
