    Pros

    Always donig the right thing for customer both FA and HO;independence yet much help as needed;great culture and philosophy

    Cons

    way too much emphasis on trimester plans,''stars",etc.; as a new FA it is overwhelming how to prioritize;as a veteran FA,leave me alson already !

    Advice to Management

    put the area leaders to work with coaching new FAs and off the butts and earn their keep;it is too much of an inner clique that is out of touch

    Pros

    Very helpful headquarter services--various departments very knowledgable. Even though I am in a branch and on my own the majority of time (FA not here most of the time)--I always feel the support of a very large organization. Excellent resources and very user friendly technology--I was up and running in a week. Good resources and support while learning the job.

    Cons

    Must be very independent and OK with working alone the majority of time. Sometimes difficult to reach particular departments for help--long wait times. I would really like an opportunity for career advancement with this firm as I very much would like to stay here long term--but there are only two positions available at the branch level--and as a BOA I really have nowhere to go but stay in this same spot, as I am not interested in sales. I wish there were more career opportunities in the operations area, such as running a multi-advisor office etc., or positions such as ones located at headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Management/compliance at the headquarters level seems a bit removed from what really happens/difficulties we face daily/the extent of our service to clients (we do everything for them) at the branch level. I have not met any management at that level outside of one regional meeting. They are wonderful figure heads and speakers--very inspiring speakers--but I think not really in tune with those of us in the field.
