Not all regions are setup in a positive way. Look to see how many in your area. If there is 10 on one street in a small town, pass on the job. You won't get promised bonuses since there won't be any unless FA is working long hard hours and is extremely qualified for the job. To many offices is a setup for failure, then repeat new FA to work for and you will never get bonuses which are given at mercy of FA out of their bonuses

FINRA does not require you to transfer your assets from one firm to another. However the hiring firm can require that you do as a condition of employment as is the case with Ed Jones.
In fact, FINRA Rule 3210 provides that an executing member must, upon written request by the employer member, transmit duplicate copies of confirmations and statements, or the transactional data contained therein, with respect to an account subject to the rule.

Further, Accounts Established Prior to Association With the Member Firm
makes allowance for accounts opened by an associated person prior to his or her association with the employer member. Specifically, Supplementary Material .01 provides that, if the account was opened or otherwise established prior to the person’s association with the employer member, the associated person, within 30 calendar days of becoming so associated, must obtain the written consent of the employer member to maintain the account and must notify in writing the executing member or other financial institution of his or her association with the employer member.12
