The company as a whole is fantastic.

Associate Financial Representative (Current Employee) Wilmington, NC (US)

ProsHuge potential to build your own business and make a lot of money
Helping others in and outside your community build financial security

Some reps are better than others. Some Advisors business is hurting and pay their employees poorly (assistant roles), also they create a very negative atmosphere.
Can be high stress.
