    Pros

    The autonomy to build my practice focusing on my strengths and having the support of a large company to help in areas that are not the best use of my time to serving clients' needs is unparalleled. The opportunity to earn ownership in the partnership is open to everyone at the firm not just the financial advisors.

    Cons

    Takes time to build your individual practice.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue focusing on supporting the branch team and not just the FA. Thanks for making the tough choices with new regulation to keep the partnership healthy for future generations.
