Surrounded by very motivated and hard working people

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Obsidian Financial Group

ProsAll the support is provided for Series 7 Exams, and the work environment is very alive with people that you can talk to about anything.

ConsThe work itself involves a lot of cold calling as it is natural with the industry, and requires one to be extremely competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more face time with your brokers. The work is very individual-based but still people are working in the same room with other people, and some are so eager for chances to learn and develop networking, but it's not that easy when you know that a minute spent talking to you is a minute taken away from that person making calls.

Made me realize that I do not want to be a broker

Broker Trainee (Former Employee)
Westbury, NY

I worked at Obsidian Financial Group

ProsFreedom to choose when to take breaks.
Employees are helpful to each other.
Senior brokers can be helpful with building sales skills.

Cons400+ cold calls per day
Uses old leads
Long work days for only $50 per day while in training.
After completing series 7, pay only increases to $60 per day.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart training classes immediately. A new broker trainee like myself would appreciate a few hours off the phones during the first few weeks to begin preparing to become licensed.
