I have been working at North Star Resource Group

Pros

Great opportunity for advancement and a lot of recognition. Good balance between working hard and playing hard. Very competent leadership and a fun culture. Great opportunity to learn and work the same time.

Cons

A lot of hard work. If you are not comfortable with sales then you will be way out of your comfort zone. Ask a lot of questions before you start in this career or you could be disappointed.

    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.

    I worked at North Star Resource Group

    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.
