    Pros

    Good base salary. Excellent benefits. Retirement plan is generous. TIAA-CREF matches charitable contributions to educational institutions. Nice campus in Charlotte. Good co-workers. Excellent Core Values. They really do want to put the client first.

    Cons

    Technology is unwieldy. Sales goals are not tailored to each region. High wealth areas have the same goals as low wealth areas. If you are not at goal after your first 90 days, you are written up! Sales credit takes months after the fact. Little support for new advisors to navigate this complex organization. Silo departments, nobody takes ownership, but is quick to place blame. Numerous problems crediting clients' money to the right accounts. Everyone is walking on eggshells. Lots of advisor turnover. NIGO's abound. There is a whole dept devoted to NIGO, but they are not there to fix the problem, just to ID.

    Advice to Management

    Address the pervasive "culture of fear". There is a reason for the high turnover in WMA's. Exit interviews needed. Look at how true wealth management firms operate.


  2. Very structure and Nano management

    Pros

    Excellent training into main frame system, and products

    Cons

    over strict on anything that's not their likings, is like all employees are walking in egg shell, in fear of getting written up for just about anything their manager does not like, I believe the management has let the power go to their heads, making their ego bigger than the egg shell they came out......

    Advice to Management

    chill out , and remember you were not born knowing this job, you are to help to make great athletics not brake them down to build your ego's..
