Great for those who know what they're getting into
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 10, 2016
For those who want to become a financial advisor, this may just be the best place to get that career going. There are almost daily training sessions, a wide array of extremely successful managers, and a great team of support staff. Expect to work at least 12 hours a day and almost every other Saturday.
Personally, this job wasn't for me due to the fact that in order to build your book of business you have to put in countless hours cold calling and marketing yourself which wasn't what I expected from this position. It is also a job that you are in to the end, so if you are going to take a job here, make sure you are absolutely sure it is what you want to do.
It has a very high turnover rate in terms of new hires leaving after the first few months due to the fact that you really don't make any money in the job for about 5-6 months due to it's commission based nature.
There is a promise of wealth and luxury at the end of the road, but maybe 5-10% of people that start here actually get that far.
Excellent managing team, great co-workers, good environment
Face-timing atmosphere, no work/life balance, little job movement opportunity
