Very motivating environment to work in
It's definitely a very motivating and competitive place to work in with everyone mostly keeping to themselves. My supervisor and boss in the McLean, VA office were very nice but with their super busy schedules, it can be difficult to ask for their assistance and guidance at times. It is definitely a very independent type of work-style in that everything is basically self-taught and learned through trail-and-error and experience. There is practically free-food lying around all day long that were leftover from meetings prior so lunch is pretty much free for most days and accomodies are also very nice. Speaking of meetings, they take place virtually daily so be prepared to sit through both long and short meetings everyday since they act as a form of teaching you how to go about doing your work. Most of the meetings are hard to understand if you are just a novice in the financial-advisory field so you must take a lot of notes and listen diligently but otherwise, most of the time everyone is doing their own work whether it's studying for certification tests of client-meetings and other related tasks.
Pros
Free lunches and great environment to work in
Cons
Difficult work and life balance due to long hours and unpaid over-time
