    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Mariner Wealth Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will get to experience a ton of different elements to each role as they are very very understaffed so there is a great opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    The culture is awful. Upper management treats associates with extreme disrespect. They are disorganized, untimely and advertising roles that are not consistent with industry pay. Get ready to work all the time, get yelled at, endure extreme stress and get underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    If you would like to retain associates get an HR department that is concerned with more than benefits. There is a standard of normal professional conduct that should apply to upper management as well. It's a miracle more employees don't file lawsuits.

  6. "Big learning- little sleep"

    I worked at Mariner Wealth Advisors full-time

    Pros

    Huge growth potential, all levels of employees are exposed to most areas of wealth management, intense learning experience

    Cons

    Stressful, political, understaffed, overworked... if you are a top performer they will squeeze every last bit of life out of you until you are burned out and as mediocre as everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Just because certain employees are willing to go above and beyond, does not mean you should expect the world from them. You don't want to wear down your favorite pair of shoes the first week you buy them.

    Pros

    Availablity of senior management and collegial work environment make working there very comforting. Excellent opportunties to interact with clients and outside business contacts.

    Cons

    Its a newer firm and there are growing pains from a technological standpoint. There have been several changes in top level strategies at the senior management level.

    Advice to Management

    Set a clear path for growth and success and make it work. Continue to be opportunistic and agressive in acquiring talent.
