"Enjoyable"

Current Employee - Financial Advisor
Current Employee - Financial Advisor

I have been working at Waddell & Reed full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Freedom to make your own schedule. Managers are usually available to help if an issue arises that needs special attention. Ability to make as much money as you want

Cons

Compensation is based soley on comissions. I didn't know that when I signed on to become a Financial Advisor. Wish there was some sort of base compensation to help get started.

Advice to Management

Limit number of new advisors that a manager can oversee. Their calendars fill up quickly and can be hard to get 1 on 1 training.
