    Cons

    No coaching in the job
    A rotating door with Advisers
    Accounts were not evenly distributed when a broker left

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest with an employee up-front. I was lured into accepting employment with Morgan Stanley contingent upon a mentor-ship with a senior broker. The offer was not there when I started.
