Does anyone know anything about Hilliard Lyons, what they're payouts are like, and what it's like to be an FA with that company?
They sold most of their offices, located above the mason-dixon line, to PNC about four or five years ago. Prior to that a friend who worked for HL really liked them. Good firm, nice operations people. My buddy didn't like PNC and moved to RBC.
Hilliard is owned by a grocery store - eventually you'll be working for peanuts:-)
I agree with BondGuy - RBC is a good alternative
