    Pros

    I have complete control over the hours I work and how I build my practice. Back office support it very helpful and efficient, which allows me to spend time finding clients and building financial plans. I receive a lot of support in the beginning as I learn and free help with clients for the first year as I build my practice.

    Cons

    It is 100% commission based, so the beginning can be very difficult to get through. There is not any help finding clients.

    Advice to Management

    Help new advisers build a solid prospecting plan right away and help keep them accountable to it and keep them on track.
