Top Tier financial planning firm

Financial Representative (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsLimitless Potential, with a client first attitude. It truly is the #1 company if you do your research.

ConsIt takes determination, skill, and a never say die attitude. Some people just don't have all the right attributes to make it.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmphasize the need for new reps to be smart with their money. I see guys go and blow all they have and then have a bad month and can't pay bills.

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