    I worked at Waddell & Reed full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, unless you're inheriting a book of business.

    Cons

    Did not pay for licensing exams, no support structure, basically given a phone and told to sell securities. No requirements for hiring, only pass exams. Employees are not a concern to them, only if you can sell.

    Advice to Management

    Relocate HQ from Kansas City to NY

    I worked at Waddell & Reed full-time

    Pros

    None. When recruited they say Choice is all flexible, etc. I was misled and the entire experience was awful.

    Cons

    Poor management. Compliance treats you very poorly. Very disorganized. A LOT of nonsensical paperwork that is very time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Get replaced.
