    Pros

    Great Industry Ranking by JD Power Some good veteran FAs Better comp structure for new FAs Licensing program was good before (not anymore) Employee Discounts

    Cons

    Hours will kill you Beware of lack of ownership Beware of non-compete Beware of clawback up to $75k Read every little detail and document provided No life outside of work 2-3 Always be selling No real financial planning St. Louis managers/bosses out of touch with reality Hard sales goals Door knocking all the time Doing everything yourself with no admin help for first 1-1.5 yrs until you get a BOA

    Advice to Management

    Partner new FAs with experienced advisors so they survive Develop good scalable plans to grow Current model is not scalable in modern age Get new FAs some admin help Outdated systems Outdated tactics of sales
