Pros: Flexibility, Potential for upward movement, close to home
Cons: Work environment, lack of atmosphere
I was hired to take over the Grand Island, NE office for an advisor group out of Norfolk, NE. I struggled in the lonely work environment and felt my personality was not fit for the position. I typically spent the day studying for the required licensing exams in order to start as a Financial Advisor in the industry. I would also, sit in on client meetings, taking notes, help with client paperwork and appointment scheduling. I had no other co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the solitary environment.The enjoyable aspect was that the job offered a ton of potential for upward movement and pay increase, for someone who had the ability to be comfortable in that work environment.
