Pros

Transitioning from the old "Mom and Pop" type of firm. Very client focused. Still selling A share funds with high commissions, but competitive managed account fees. Advisors are willing to help each

Cons

Initial advisors are instructed to open accounts for anyone so they can hit there bogeys. This is not always conducive to a long term advisor growth strategy. Many advisors know very little about how

Advice to Management

Moving in right direction. Keep evolving.

  1. Associate General Counsel Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Dealt with two different EJ recruiters, neither of which were the “primary recruiter”. Had a total of two interviews before not moving forward.

    After the second interview which consisted of three separate talks with other general counsels, could not get an update for over a month. The secondary recruiter was extremely helpful but the primary recruiter was impossible to get a hold of. Finally got the automated message I was not moving on after over 4 weeks.

    Communication nightmare and just an awful process. It can’t be that difficult to send a quick update email!
