    Pros

    You feel empowered to do what is best for your clients without the pressure or competing priorities of working on commission. You also have a ton of resources at your disposal to ensure that you can deliver advice to clients.

    Cons

    Advisor's tend to have very low capacity due to the increased demand which can cause you to have a very busy day.

    Cons

    There were a few people that I worked with that were incompetent. Really don't know how they got the job or who hired them, but it really ruined the company image for me.
