I worked at Langdon Ford Financial full-time (More than a year)
If you find the right friends it can be a rewarding, team oriented experience.
Pressure seems to get to the financial advisors. They post stats of each advisor via company email to see who's in what place in terms of sales. This in my opinion just makes things worse.
Great people, summer Friday hours
Not the best salary, raises or x-mas bonus
Even though it is difficult to start as a financial advisor as your first job out of college, there are experienced advisors at langdon ford that will help you. They'll let you join them on client meetings and they will sit in on your own client meetings to provide assistance.
If you start as a financial advisor at langdon ford straight out of college, the job is very difficult to succeed at. It's not the fault of the company, but as a recent college grad, you don't have the connections or experience for many people to trust you as a financial advisor. Therefore, a lot of cold calling is required.
Advice to Management
Provide greater assistance to new financial advisors to help them get started successfully. Encourage greater communication among the financial advisors to provide a more open environment.
