I have been working at Robert W. Baird & Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Once you connect with the right person, doors are opened wide. This company has a lot of great ways to connect with clients.

Cons

Hard to move up, old timers are not good with change. Very old boys club is finally getting some diverse members.

Advice to Management

Don't take the responses from senior FAs at face value. It's all about appearances with some. It's not enough for the CRAs to be given direction for goals and projects if the FAs they work with are not addressed. Some feel like rules are set for everyone but them.
