Internal Communication

Because this Firm is so highly regulated, you will spend a portion of your time taking required surveys and tutorials.

What I like about the company

Benefits; people; diversity.

What I dislike about the company

Whenever you are in a company this large, no matter how great the Firm may be as a whole, it all boils down to your direct manager. If they are great, you'll be great. If they aren't, you may be in trouble - not them. Also, as a financial services firm, they are more concerned with the top earners than your average citizen or employee.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There are some efforts to become a more diverse and inclusive, but it is still an overwhelmingly male dominated company. Offering additional training to women and minorities would not only diversity the company, but would also help them appeal to a wider client base. In an effort to be competitive with brick and mortar banks, they are expanding their banking products to the detriment of their core business model. They need to refocus on providing holistic financial advice, rather than pushing cash management.

What I like about the company

It is a team-based, collaborative atmosphere. Support staff frequently bounces ideas and best practice off one another, which takes stress off the individual. There are many opportunities to earn bonuses if you’re willing to put the work in.

What I dislike about the company

They are pushing to become a normal bank and put pressure on staff to sell banking products. This distracts from the main purpose of having a financial advising team.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The upper/regional management could have an idea of the every day that hits it's frontline employees. It's like the upper management is so far removed that they don't understand what it's like talking to real clients.

What I like about the company

They are pretty stable and willing to work with you on progressing your career forward. Each location is different and, but I really do like my immediate supervisors. They're pretty open.

What I dislike about the company

They aren't great to their support staff. The financial advisors are treated pretty well but they don't make it easy for service staff to get accolades or bonuses. The new FAs have little support so they basically work the kids without support and then cut them if they don't make the rigorous program requirements.
