Staffr (Former Employee) –  New JerseyJanuary 1, 2019
Open office concept.
Can be a bit loud.
Friendly staff. No backstabbing.
People get the work done with a minimum of drama.
Working hours seem not to be set in stone. People arrive and leave whenever. Many occasionally work at home.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCDecember 23, 2018
Family Atmosphere- Family comes first, and they strive to make you part of a work family. They truly care about you both professionally and personally. They have very fun work environment and encourage methods of lowering stress levels. Upper management is easy to talk to and receptive to new ideas.

Horrible Place to work
Wealth Management Advisor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 21, 2018
I was hired in 2006, at that time, $1Bil was leaving the company every month. Our mission was to reach out to HNW clients and build financial plans to deepen and strengthen relationships. It was very rewarding and fun. By 2011, assets started pouring in; the mission had changed. The only thing that matters was bringing in assets. Management changed and it became a very un-fun place to work.

Pressure. Too much change. It's more a CYA type environment. Not much enjoyment in the job. Groups tend to work against each other instead of with each other.

A conflicted non-profit
INDIVIDUAL INVESTMENT CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MADecember 3, 2018
Company touts a non-profit image but is very much in the business of trying to create revenue. HIgh pressure place with unrealistic demands and expectations. They pay fairly decent but goals arent relative to opportunities.

The Lewisville location is a call center. Can be a bit of a grind especially when the phones are busy. They do have a ping pong table to let off some steam.

No entrepreneurial spirit
Wealth Management Advisor (Former Employee) –  Boston, MANovember 8, 2018
Every activity is based on an individual Metric as opposed to success on an overall score, a collegial approach or being a team player. At some point they have to let you out of your nest and fly, something i clearly never found.

great company

great company, but with additional assets under management, the structure is unsteady. There have been many rounds of layoffs as a result. I think the culture will be better down the road.
Pros
established company
Cons
changing company structure
