Has anyone read through the fine print on Robinhood’s new IRA product? Saw they offer a 1% match but I’m assuming there’s some string attached. Wondering if it makes sense to move my IRA over from a traditional brokerage (Fidelity, Vanguard, etc.)

    Cons

    Vanguard use to have a company culture where you felt like you were part of a big family. Great atmosphere and leadership seemed to care about crew. However in recent years its turned away from caring about crew and turned to profits like other major companies. Major disappointment.

    Pros

    Great office relationships, kind and understanding bosses, opportunities to grow and move up, encouraging workplace, some benefits

    Cons

    If not a licensed broker then customers were rude and refused to work with you, if stock market was down or having issues due to current events in the world call times were long and people would be screaming the second they came on. Mostly it was the clients who didn't understand what IRAs or 401ks were that drained and pushed me out.
