    Pros

    They have good benefits and they really care about you. How they handled the COVID 19 situation has been amazing. They give you opportunities to get investment licenses and there is a lot to learn. It is a very diverse company.

    I would say the only downside is the pay is average compared to the companies in the area.

    I have been working at LPL Financial full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Smart, driven people who still take the time to help each other. Employees are treated as people, not just a resource and management puts that mentality into action where it matters most. Unlimited career opportunity for high achievers who love what they do and willing and able to work very hard to create great outcomes.

    Cons

    Incredibly fast paced. Not the right place if you are uncomfortable with change or able to adapt on a dime.
