Advisor

Futures Financial Advisor (Former Employee)

I worked at SWS Group

ProsSWS is more flexible for an experienced fianancial advisor than many of the larger financial services companies. The company is locally known and respected. A great place for a financial advisor to grow his business.

ConsSWS group does not have a training program in place to foster career opporunities for college graduates. The company is more geared to providing opportunity for professionals later in their career.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe comapny could grow by expanding the banking division. A training program would also allow the company to grow and have a younger feel.
