Scottrade Offer. Thoughts?
I know, I know... Scottrade. I've seen many of the old comments. OK, be frank, but don't beat up on me. I've got an offer from Scottrade and I want some feedback from peers.
Been at WFA for 18 months with good number of accounts but my revenue wasn't cutting it. I like the business, enjoy helping people get their financial lives straight, feel like I'm pretty good at it, just not enough of a killer to convert 250-300 dials a day. I'm good across the table though. I've got "Know-Like-Trust" coming out my ears. Here's the thing, I've tapped my resources and with a family can't finance building a book for another three years. Scottrade offering $47K base plus incentives.
Does anyone know what their competitors (Fidelity, ETrade, Schwab, TDAmeritrade, TIAA) are like? I know I'll be a "bottle-fed baby" but the structure plays to my strengths. Feedback on comp, culture, brand comparison please. I understand no portability. Scottrade feels a little like the runt of the pack. Thoughts?
