Good if you inherit a big office or get picked for a large Good Night....if not watch out!

Financial Advisor (Current Employee)

ProsGreat training. Plenty of independence. Assistant is not shared so you have lots of in office support. You own office.

ConsIf you arent fortunate to get a good head start your doomed. Odds of success are not relayed to potential candidates when they are explaining the job. First 3 years expect to be paid slave wages if you dont inherit a $50mm office. No 401K match for FA's.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake asset sharing more fair. Minority Advisers are not treated the same as the good old boys

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
