    Great Culture, Easy to Adapt

    Need more control over your employees

    Keep it up but have more control over the way operations speaks to reps, sometimes it gets a little crazy and they need to know how to stay calm with reps.

    I worked at JP Turner & Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    it is a good crash course on the industry in general. The people are generally knowledgeable and helpful.

    Cons

    90% of your time is spent cold calling and in meetings that seem to go on forever. The marketing model is somewhat outdated.

    Pros

    The the leader of the program is a good guy and makes it fun

    Cons

    The only point of the internship process is to sustain the internship program.. Basically all you do as an intern is make calls to a stack of resumes about coming to work for the company as either a new broker or intern.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your interns

    Pros

    Flexibility of products to sell to clients..

    Cons

    Lisensing fees are negotiated based on how much business u can bring... would not rccomend for newly lisenced agents or people w/o a book of business.. Not a good place to start your career at all. Company is changing heavily, and acts like bluechip management but in reality, the clients are at jpt BC they want that flexibility. They're people too, and if ur a good advisor who can course good investments for clients, jpt should be flexible. STAY AWAY IF UR A NEW RECRUIT!

    Company is changing aggresivly to stay above FINRA'S regulations, but that has only hindered and slowed business day by day. Many people started doing life/insurance sales instead of portfolio management, as was once the lifeblood of the firm.

    You pay your own mo nthly fees and e+o insurance.
