Pros

You have the opportunity to work as a team and not just an employee.
Multple ways to involve yourself in the company and the region.
Mini meetings and regional meetings help ensure your growth as a team as well as a BOA.
Benefits are good for the most part.

Cons

While the benefits are good, something should be done about the high deductible in our healthcare.
Or at least give us the ability to increase the balance of our HSA when we increase the amount going into the HSA monthly.

Advice to Management

In training the financial advisors, I think you should make them more aware of what a BOAs job is. The training needs to stress that much of what a BOA does has to be at the direction of the financial advisor. Some of the new financial advisors assume that BOAs have the authority to do more than they can & that can cause problems, such as friction between FA & BOA which is not conducive to a good team.

    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

    I am my own boss, working hours of my choosing. It is a great culture, no sales pressure, can earn fantastic trips, and make more money than I ever dreamed possible. All by doing what's right for my clients and making a positive difference in their financial lives. Also, I am a partner in the firm, able to share in the profits.

    Cons

    Getting started is a challenge, but the training and support help make sure that the right people will succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
