    I have been working at Sovereign Global Advisors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company will accept nothing less than what's best for the client and then make the process so easy for the rep while extending support and encouragement. There is no place to go wrong! When I came on board, the CEO - John Dragotta, called to check how I was progressing and ask if I had questions. It was an overwhelming professional experience to be nurtured without demands and stipulations. Individualized one on one training was provided to ensure I was comfortable with the software systems. This is a company that sets an example of the highest integrity every day with actions which inspire representatives to pass that conduct of integrity on to clients. This is a very positive, energized organization that I am honored to be associated with.

    Cons

    I do not have any negative comments. It's all wonderful!

    I have been working at Sovereign Global Advisors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They really care about their reps and it shows. I've been to quite a few IBD's and this group is simply just amazing. They will actually stay late and do whatever they have to in order to get something done if they know its important to you. They are smart and they are kind, two of my favorite qualities in humans, and they are on my team now and I couldn't be happier.

    Cons

    Not easy to get in. They just don't hire small reps. Philosophy is quality over quantity. So if you get in, its an accomplishment.

    I have been working at Sovereign Global Advisors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The knowledge and the help from the staff is on point. Making a transition over to SGA has not only been the best choice, it’s been seamless and pleasurable. I’ve had a career spanning two decades and I’ve never been treated with this much care and attention to my business needs. Very excited about my future with SGA, and Mr. Dragotta. Hard pressed to find people like this.

    Cons

    None, it’s been as good as it gets

    I have been working at Sovereign Global Advisors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Like no firm I’ve ever dealt with. CEO is obsessed and he’ll tell you like it is. Real visionary. I’ll admit I was totally scared of the transition but I was promised that it would go smooth and they really delivered. They actually care and it shows. From effective communication with me and my clients to some of them actually staying late making sure things were done correctly for me. The whole transition actually went crazy quick, much, much faster than I had thought and so much smoother than I ever could of imagined. I’m still actually a bit shocked. Their real Pros and it shows in their work. I really appreciated everything they did for me. If you have a large book of business like me and want pros handling your transition...this is the place.

    Cons

    None.... well maybe Dragotta is too honest but it makes you see some things differently and I can see how it can help my business. Almost like a business coach! Hurts to hear the truth sometimes but it’s what we need when striving to be better. Other than that he’s all love and support! Hahaa
