    Pros

    Depending on the office you work and whom the financial advisors are that you work for- it's a Mon - Fri 8-5 job however very flexible. You basically work on your own, with guidance. The home office staff is wonderful! Great training opportunities.

    Cons

    Your open when market is open. Very risky when you are registered to make sure you follow all compliance-industry guidelines and be careful when placing trades, otherwise you may have to pay for your mistakes.

    Pros

    Co-workers are close knit group

    Cons

    Too little staff doing too many different jobs - Family/work balance doesn't exist. Benefits are expensive for a married person with children.

    Advice to Management

    Stop punishing the employees who say "no" once in a while. Start treating employees as such instead of believing in the concept of "if you don't like it, you're free to go . . .we'll just hire someone who wants your job.
