Pros

Great Education--paid by the company
Potiential to make lots of money (If that's what floats your boat)

Cons

You might not make lots of money.
If you get out early--to work in a BANK for instance--they will sue you--and probably win
You might make a mistake that could cost you $$ or your license

Advice to Management

Quit this job. Life is too short to spend it ripping people off.

    Pros

    I was an employee of Citi Smith Barney from 2007 - 2010. The company was willing to invest in growing advisors and did their best to provide them with additional support.

    Cons

    Even back in 2007, it was clear that the company was focusing on their million dollar producers. Those that didn't appear to have the growth potentional were encouraged to consolidate.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I think management is taking the right approach to changing the corporate structure.

    Pros

    Sept 2012 MS carries a Lot of weight with its reputation. Extraordinary variety of product both in ternally and externally. Working at MS could certainly be the crowning achievement to some ones career.

    Cons

    Extraordinary variety of product both in ternally and externally - Over whelming for a newbie. Many offices offer very little TANGENTABLE help in completeing paperwork and mastering the job.
