A rather depressing experience.

Intern (Former Employee) Riverside, CA

ProsLarge company, high growth of salary opportunities

ConsThe people in the office just didn't seem very smart. Oily salesman ethos all over the place. Disconnect between the people who create the funds and those who are recommending them.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a nicer work environment both physically and in regards to the human capital.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    expensive, proprietary and cannot fulfill all of client's needs

    Financial Advisor (Former Employee) Naperville, IL

    I worked at Waddell & Reed


    Pros: Great commissions, easy to learn product base (because it is… Cons: You only sell proprietary funds IVY and Waddell and Reed. They push insurance and their "MAP" program for all clients even if the products aren't… Advice to Senior Management: You tell your new advisors you can make this $xxx,xxx per year… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
