Very stressful overall and poor help from upper management.

Pros

Ability to work independently as well as on a team. Ability to conduct own research on various types of investments.

Cons

This company provides little to no benefits at all (Health, dental...) and the office in the new york firm is a miserable place to conduct business. 100% cold-calling for bringing in new business!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would suggest getting an office upgrade/make-over and try to expand business by other means than cold-calling. I would also consider increasing salary to recruit/maintain more talent.

    Pros

    Sponser you for your series 7

    Cons

    you will be cold calling for 9-10 hrs a day with maybe a 30-60 min break, prospecting for clients who dont need more financial advice, reading off a shitty script that rarely works anymore, get your lisence and jumpy ship asap to a wirehouse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    teach trainees financial side of being a broker, not just being a telemarketer reading off a script
