I have been working at North Star Resource Group full-time

Pros

Great culture and co-workers.
Independence of owning your own business, flexible schedule.
Freedom to build your practice however you envision it.

Cons

Takes a lot of hard work and long hours to build successful practice.
Very unstable compensation for the first few years
If you need someone to watch over you and tell you what to do then this career is not for you.

Advice to Management

Pay your staff more - we've got great administrative support but they aren't compensated as well as they should be.

    Pros

    - Flexible Schedule for support staff
    - Received time off when I wanted/needed it
    - Fun enviorment
    - 1/3 of the Financial Advisors are fun, and bonus their support staff since the company decided to stop giving raises 5 years ago

    Cons

    - Management sucks
    - 5 year "raise freeze" for the staff even though the company was hitting "record high" numbers
    - No training program for new employees
    - There has not been a real Human Resouces contact for over 6 years
    - Management does not communicate with their staff on important matters

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employess to stay, and your advisors to be appy, try paying your staff more. They have given you many years of dedicated service, what have you given them?
