    Pros

    Good solid company with an awesome trading platform. Management truly wants to help you succeed and will help whenever needed.

    Cons

    Sales quotas and commissions constantly a moving target. Drives me absolutely crazy when companies raise your sales quota, cut your commission and tells you they will replace you if you do not meet them. I am not motivated by this tactic but it is one that is commonly used in this industry. I finally had to get out and start my own company. I make 3 times the money with the same amount of stress but can take off whenever I want. (I hit the quotas btw but did not like the pressure from above, no different than any other brokerage though.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys know the numbers and the squeeze may work on most people but not on me. I hit all of my sales goals but every quarter they get raised and pay gets cut. I get it, I am a business owner but when you tell your team (most of which hit the #'s) that they can be replaced it makes some of them check out. You spent a bunch of money training me and I walked out, sorry.
