Pros

Great job if you know wealth folks who think your smart

Cons

Hard to get started as a new financial advisor. High failure rate

Advice to Management

Keep your eye on the big picture and remember if it looks to good to be true, it almost always is. Keep looking to find the fatal flaw and never think that reward can be achieved with out the need to manage risk.

    Pros

    the name as a resume builder, can make a ton of money if you know how to sell crap to people they dont need.

    Cons

    long hours in the financial advisor program. they pair rookies with senior advisors, they know full well you wont make it, so you are basically a lackey to the senior guy until you cant it anymore.

    Advice to Management

    well the managers in our office dont really do anything, but push in house products for the financial advisors to sell.

  2. Morgan Stanley; great firm, great people, poor people management

    figure out core skills of all employees, interests, degree of utilization and figure out how to leverage better through career development, new opportunities and mobility
