Pros

Most ethical advisor firm by far, truly look out for their clients Great training especially if you have limited to no financial knowledge Good Support and help for new advisors

Cons

Sales Sales Sales... minimal financial knowledge truly needed Door knocking and cold calling, in all weather Very high turnover/burnout rate

Advice to Management

New FAs are sold on the lifestyle and benefits of successful advisors, however little emphasis is placed on the high burnout rate, stress and hardships that takes to just survive in the business.

    Pros

    Commission is at 40%, Profit Sharing, 401K, Two trips available to win every year, trimester bonuses. Most FA's are extremely helpful. Clients are excellent. One phone call away from Home Office at all times.

    Cons

    If you don't do the work, you won't make it. But, EJ gives the recipe, all you have to do is follow it.

    Very unpleasant, with some nice people, many backstabbing people.

    Close to home, reasonable commute.

    Thrifty to a fault. Supplies are monitored, down to number of pencils you ask for.

    Advice to Management

    Consider letting employees have some time off on the weekend.
