Pros

Flexibility and control of your own schedule without a lot of direct supervision. If you can handle that responsibility, it is a good career.

Cons

Just like any large corporation, there is a ton of bureaucracy and red tape that makes doing your job a little tough. Coupled with FINRA and it can be a beast at times.

Advice to Management

Those who can, do; those who can't, manage. Management, for the most part, has never been in the field selling so often there is a disconnect.
