Which company has the best benefits for a new broker?  Who is really the best to work for?

Edward Jones. If you don’t believe it, ask them.

Primerica. If you don’t believe it ask bigmoneyhoney.

I’m not sure any top tier firms are hiring rookies right now.  You could likely start at a bank or 3rd World Broker Dealer though.  Your best bet is to start as an assistant, and bust your chops and work your way up.

Best find your own way. This forum carries a lot of baggage. GO EVERYWHERE and see what presents.

A client of mine whose a pharmacist told me last month that one of his customers made him an offer to drop the pharmacist gig and go to work for World Financial Group.  Evidently there are people leaving the medical field to go to work for them…

I already excepted an offer at E Jones.  I was just curious how the competition ranked up.

  Jones has some pyramid in them as well, they just mask it better.

I know they have some things worked into the good night program, but how are they like a pyramid?

    So did you except the offer and turn them down, or accept the offer and take the job?

One of the guys at work told me he thought I was quarter-queer.  Is that the same thing?
