Good company, good opportunity

Financial Advisor Trainee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThey give you a lot of freedom and resources to succeed. The reputation is good and if you are a self starter you can succeed. Management is supportive and want you to succeed.

ConsPerhaps not enough direction given especially to young employees with limited work experience. It is very difficult to meet goals and the majority of people will fail. Much of this is due to the individual employee not doing enough but the lack of direction from management doesn't help.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on integrating new FAs into teams so they are less likely to fail.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Experience depends on the team you are in - but not good for career if you are interested in software technology
