Pros

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

Cons

If 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 Management

Make asset sharing more fair. Minority Advisers are not treated the same as the good old boys

  1. Good to get started and learn to be independent. You work for them and they own your business.

    Pros

    Really good training on the basics of your business. They will give you the step by step guide on how to start a financial advisor business.

    Cons

    You have to be connected or have good timing to get an office to take over. If you start from scratch, chances are, you will not make it.

    Advice to Management

    Make the option to move into an office more available.

    Pros

    Their training for the series 7 and the 66 allowed me to pass on the first try. I hear this is not the case at competitive companies.

    Cons

    Company needs to adapt more to having women as financial advisors

    Advice to Management

    More work/life balance needed if you want to attract high quality female candidates.
