    Good benefits, including amount of time off

    The amount of work is ridiculous. All you are doing is heping the advisor (WMA) you support succeed and get a big bonus. They keep increasing your goals every year - this is physically imposibe to meet. The pay is not fair. There could be $30k dofference in pay - doing the exact same job.
