Pros

standard wealth management internship, got to see some interesting things in the business but mostly intern work

Cons

not too technical or learning new skills, but you get to be in a corporate setting and sometimes you get to contribute

Advice to Management

try to create more opportunities for interns (maybe paid?)

    Pros

    Awesome culture. A lot of young motivated people that will go out of their way to try to help you with your business.

    Cons

    Basically no base pay. Its a ton of work to start your own practice and it doesnt pay off unless you can last 5+ years

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective with interns and put more effort into training them.

  2. The experience I gained there is invaluable and will help me in so many facets of my life.

    Pros

    -Learning about the world of finance.
    -The network and relationships you build
    -Complete autonomy of how you run your practice but with world-class training and help

    Cons

    -100% commissions-It's awesome when you have a great month.....not so nice when you have a good month
    -too much emphasis on numbers and quotas as opposed to individual development

    Advice to Management

    Not every one is driven by the same things or can be managed or inspired the same way. Take into consideration the varying personalities and work on people's individual strengths and weaknesses
