is anybody here a financial advisor or know much about the industry. I have now had two interviews with a company called Waddell & Reed and they seem to have taken a liking to me.
going into these interviews I really had no serious intention on switching jobs, but I am sort of "exploring other options."
The company is mid-sized advising company, certainly not a Merril Lynch or Smith Barney, but those companies won't even bat an eye at you unless you have your series 7 and series 66. And to qualify to take those tests you have to be sponsored by a company. kind of a visious cycle if you ask me..
anyways, It seems like there is a bunch of money here if you are good at what you do. but just wondering if anyone here is a bit more enlightened than i and may have a bit of advise..
