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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley

    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 ManagementAdvice

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