Bad reviews keep getting deleted
Data Quality Management (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCMarch 16, 2017
Don't trust what you read here because LFG regularly gets bad reviews purged. I guess it's cheaper than treating people like human beings. Yesterday there were over 400 reviews, and what do you know, today their down to 200 with all the one star reviews deleted.

At least half half the employees are miserable, and a good deal of their workforce are temps trapped in temp jobs for years at a time despite being sold on temp to perm within a year or less.
Pros
None to speak of.
Cons
Insane micromanagers and incompetent leaders

It was part time
Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Totowa, NJMarch 15, 2017
I really enjoyed LPL Financial but it was only part time and not in the field I wanted to work in. I really liked the work culture and enjoyed small perks like free lunches near a holiday.

Large company with lots of resources
Senior Compliance Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 25, 2017
LPL is a large company, and they have lots of resources to use. Once you are established in your position, they recognize that with some flexibility in your work schedule. They also allow you to grow within your department and functions by offering lots of cross training opportunities.

Great Employer
Independent Financial Consultant (Current Employee) –  Bedford, NHJanuary 30, 2017
A great place to work if you are self driven and have a lot of time to build a book of business with little to no support. A perfect opportunity for someone who is already established and can afford to take some time to not make much while building a company from the ground up. There are no health or retirement benefits as an independent broker.

Inbound Call Center
Senior Service Representative (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 26, 2017
Answered customer and adviser calls all day everyday. As long as you don't take too long on each call, and you have decent customer service you'll be fine. Otherwise, prepare for a long journey.
Pros
Fitness center in San Diego office, nurse on-site, cafeteria, break rooms/wellness rooms
Cons
Management makes constant changes without analyzing the potential impact, creates a hectic work environment

Workplace currently going through major cultural shift
Senior Internal Regional Director (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCJanuary 25, 2017
A typical day in the recruiter role consists of making 50 contacts to financial advisors/day primarily by cold calling and supplemental email/social media. Workplace culture somber due to many new, negative changes heaped on our business development team at once.
Pros
Brand new facility built | free cereal and soda
Cons
Compensation changes, low moral

Conflict free objective advice is a worthy business. People work hard and are compensated fairly well. Good place to grow if you are looking to manage others and move up in a corporate environment. Less so for the entrepreneurial type.
Pros
Excellent facilities and amenities.
Cons
Limited potential career for entrepreneurial versus corporate types.
