    Pros

    Great salary, tons of investment vehicles, money is there if you really work for it, fast paced depending on where you work

    Cons

    Company pushes its own investment vehicles even if they are not right for the client sometimes feel like a salesman not an advisor

    Advice to Management

    Allow the advisor to advise the client and choose their own investments
