Getting paid what your worth

Financial Advisor (Current Employee)
Waltham, MA

ProsNot stuck to a 9 to 5, you can work your 40-50 hours however you like.
I am finally get paid what I am worth due to my efforts.
Ongoing training and support the 5 years I have been here.
I have made more money every single year and I am getting paid residual income on all my business over the last 5 years.
My manager has played an active role in my development every single year and I am now helping him develop newer advisors and getting compensated for that as well.

ConsI hit a good size case and get a little lazy after that, which is my fault not the companies!
My office is an hour from my house so the 4 times a month I do drive to the office its a bit out of the way.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay aligned with developing long term career advisors like you have been doing.

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

Lots and lots of dead wood were removed Second round....most of it was good...Though one strong word of advise.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
