Enjoyed getting to know clients
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMMay 24, 2017
Extensive background check is required. there are quiet days and busy days. Office atmosphere depends on the Financial Manager.
Actual duties are no difficult.

Okay place to work if you don't mind only speaking to one or two other people all day
Branch Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INMay 18, 2017
The office that I was in was a two person office. At that time, I only spoke with that particular FA which was definitely not mentally engaging, nor was it remotely busy at that time. Your experience will be based on the office and the FA that you work for. Just because my experience wasn't the greatest does not mean that this isn't a good choice for work. Each FA is different and there are some out there who are really fantastic people!
Pros
Support system from other BOA's seemed to be really good
Cons
The FA that you work for will depend on your experience. Unfortunately, that is hard to determine until you work there.

Old school company
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  PAMay 16, 2017
The door to door method for building a book of business is an outdated practice. The turnover here is extremely high for this reason. Make sure you are truly comfortable with this idea before committing.

A challenge
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMay 7, 2017
Training is very good in helping you get needed license. Door to door knocking is very challenging. Another new guy in area I was working along with other newer advisers. A lot of there was a guy here last week, last month etc. Long hours good job if you can make it. I decided I wanted to watch my kids grow up rather than working 7 days a week.
Pros
Money if you make it
Cons
long hours, not much help if you get the wrong person

Be careful
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 2, 2017
Great firm, great values, however when you get out in the field the region is really old fashioned. They will make you door knock for 7-8 hours a day. They don't encourage networking or any other form or prospecting besides door knocking.

Productive Self Disciplined Job

Company doesn't act in best interest of clients
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  USAApril 28, 2017
Laws will soon change the way they do business, but the selling pressures is more beneficial to the advisors and company than to the clients. A lot of what is done for an unnecessary fee can be done for almost free at the discount brokers. It's about putting more $ in the pockets of the advisors.

Not bad if you don't mind pressure and no personal life
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Hendersonville, NCApril 23, 2017
A typical day is calling and visiting local strangers until you meet a certain quota of phone numbers and interest. It's a lot of rejection and a lot of frustration.

Previous entrepreneurs ideal
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Riverside, CAApril 20, 2017
Long days of prospecting with very little guidance. You must find a way to motivate yourself daily and find victories on difficult days.
Management is hands off so you must seek out assistance. People are nice. Best part of the job is having independence and the most difficult part is finding prospect that have assets to invest.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
Self lead generati

Poor example of a professional company
Contract Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee) –  St louis moApril 20, 2017
Worked there 1 week. Given very little to do. As soon as I was given something, a major production snafu occurred and there was no one available to show me the ropes. At the end of the week I was told I was not doing any work and I was booted out the door.
I would sooner have a root canal done without pain killers that to ever consider working for this company.
Pros
none
Cons
to many to list
