Pros

Definitely a laid back atmosphere compared to other financial firms I've been with.
A lot of focus on personal and professional growth.
Great people that will take the time to talk to you about anything you feel is relevant.

Cons

Sometimes there was very little guidance on what tasks need to be done.
People are very straight to the point and don't consider political correctness.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Awesome group of senior leaders who are very good examples on how to be successful.

    Pros

    Great training/mentorship program for financial advisors
    Fun people with "work hard to play harder" mentality
    Opportunity to travel
    They "recycle" employees to an extent
    Tons of perks and incentives for advisors
    Great benefits package

    Cons

    Advisor positions are commission based and your licensing comes out of pocket so don't expect to make a penny the first few months
    Traveling, supplies, and hiring assistants also come out of pocket if you are an advisor
    Lack of communication between offices
    Lack of training and advancement opportunities for employees who are not advisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a great job of communicating with the employees and giving credit where it's due.

    Pros

    Unlimited comission
    Working with very intelligent people

    Cons

    Very expensive to finance
    You get advances, so if you quit you have to pay it all back. You're basically trapped.
    You are told what needs to be done, but very little about how.
    Training program needs work.
    They say you will have a flexible schedule, but you are expected to be "on" 24/7

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually train during the training program instead of just expect people to figure it out. And don't just use them to do all your marketing, and then force them out.
