Financial Advisors

Received offers from PNC and UBS. Same position. Same benefits. Purely seeking opinions on the companies. Previous experience at EJ. Left to get away from outside sales nature and isolation.

Neither. Go independent so you are not shackled and can be in a position to give the best advice to clients.

Worked at both. PNC is the safer bet with the lower ceiling. UBS is going to be eat what you kill unless you are partnering with a team.

What’s the position? Are you just trying to decide from being in a bank vs workhouse or is the pnc position outside of a bank?

Both centralized financial Advisor roles. Simply comparing cultures, size, scope, and atmosphere at regional Bank vs global investment firm

Pnc eats alot of commission that they don't tell you about ask both for a commission sheet on all products the grid is only part of the story also ask them to give you a deep dive of the books

I’m at PNC now in the branches. It’s been an enjoyable company to work for. While the commission may not compare to B/D like UBS or EJ, stress is relatively low especially if you’re centralized. I assume you are walking into a book or bringing one?

Looking for feedback: In a leadership position with responsibility to direct sales strategies and enablement for a product category. My issue is that my new boss, who micromanages my every move, gave me a slap on the wrist for “breaking chain of command” to speak with my VP. Someone I already have a relationship/rapport with trying to get honest feedback on an initiative. Any suggestions on handling corporate politics with my boss? Previous boss allowed me to speak freely with all leaders.

A few days ago I was offered a role for a recruiter with a company. Benefits, PTO, pay is decent, enough to get me by. I accepted today because it was the final day to do so. I was then called by a recruiter for another company, in which they made me a better offer for a Generalist and I want to take this one. What do I do? I didn’t sign a contract, there’s no clause that states I need to take the position.
