I've been in the bank channel for 10 yrs. Initially I wanted to take that route, but things has changed drastically and I rather try other options out there. Thanks for your feedback

Do you have work experience or are you right out of college?

What market are you in. Or send me a chat request. I’m too new to initiate one.

Be careful where you start, and read the fine print. You don’t want to spend the next five years building a book only to find out you have a non-compete. Most of the big firms will start you with a small salary now-days. Look at Raymond James & Associates, and their AMP program. With RJA, you don’t own your book, but if you leave they won’t try to sue you if you follow the protocol rules.

While the salary cut was rough, I’ve been very happy with the training (and pay!) to get my licenses through Edward Jones. But I was a client for 20 years before becoming an advisor, so I don’t have to worry about switching firms. Hit me up if you have questions, I’m sure others will have advice as well.

One of the Cetera divisions has advisors looking for associate advisors in NYC area - completely independent and often a base and opportunity work with an advisor that has a book. Also there is a salaried training program there if looking to build your own book, completely independent, not captive, everyone owns their book. message me if you want an intro to NYC folks I know them well.

Jones will pay you to start

I work at "FairWay Furniture" right out of undergrad I was placed on team X where the salary is 70k and more in line with what I studied in college. About six months in, my org went through a restructure and I was moved to team Y that is more technical and thus makes ~85k. I have been told my salary will not change until my next review 6 months away. I feel that I should be paid according to my team. WWYD and how do I approach this situation? Definitely would not recommend fairWay...

A former Manager reached out about an e-commerce manager role for a relatively young company doing $35M/year. The role manages inventory on the site (20 skus), CRO, and Analytics plus the e-tailers (Amazon). They launched a site redesign and CVR tanked, but from what I gather they have too much of a focus on Paid Social and upper-funnel tactics. They’re hiring for a Demand Gen Analyst/Manager from a different manager. So, the roles report into different people. Question below:

I have a good offer outstanding from a tech firm (350K TC) and just got connected to a recruiter from one of the alternative investment firms (PE/Hedge/VC 35bn AUM) in NYC and it seems they want to go through the process with me. The base range given is 350K (excluding bonus and others). TC wise.. I'd like to try and see how far I can go but the tech firm is something that I really like. Is working at PE or hedge fund considered a prestige experience? YoE 14 all in consulting. Worth trying?
