I am a recent college graduate and I am starting out as a financial advisor at Waddell and Reed and wanted to get people's opinions about the company.  I have been in training for a few months and there are a few things about the company that I don't quite like. There is no name recognition since no one has heard of them, and it seems like they really want me to sell their own mutual funds over everything else. I am beginning to wonder if it would even be possible to recommend individual stocks to potential clients? They want me to reach a 1 million IVC within the first year, but individual stocks don't count towards that so I was wondering what do they count towards? I wanted to get some opinions as to whether I should try to get a job somewhere else or if I am being too rash?
