Pros

Good culture, all the experienced advisors try to help the new people as much as they can. You can get lots of support when you have questions too

Cons

The landscape of building a business is so different from 15 or 20 yrs ago as it is today. Need to get new advisors with access to clients who have money faster

Advice to Management

The way to retain people is not to have them under constant threat of termination.

    Pros

    Everything is taking care of by the firm. You get to focus strictly on adding and helping clients. If you follow the model it works.

    Cons

    Realistically takes 3 years to build a good client base. It's a long three years while working a ton of hours.

    Advice to Management

    New hires, especially new to the business, should be given a more realistic picture on how many years you must be patient to build a successful office.

    Pros

    Very flexible work environment with ability to work from home. The associates know their objectives and are empowered to reach them.

    Cons

    Pay is not as high as other competitors in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to hire external talent but they need to continue to promote from within as well.
