All depends on who you get as an advisor
BOA (Former Employee) – VA – September 20, 2017
The company itself isnt so bad but the way they structure the offices being one adviser and mostly one assistant, if you have a good adviser ..driven.honest. likable..then you can make out. But if you get a lazy one and one who may be unpopular with clients, then the office can be difficult to work in.
You can be hired for an established adviser and if he retires or leaves for another company, then you have no idea what you get stuck with next. It is hard to give advise on the job because it has so many layers to be aware of and you dont know those til you are in office and work with whoever you get.The support system is good in home office. Benefits are expensive for such a large company.
And as others stated...it is all about the commissions brought in. No company will admit..but it is all about the money.
