None from my experience as the FA is the master of micromanagement and control freak with zero empathy. The first three months as a BOA trainee, I had to report to FA every 15 mins and update the FA every tasks I was working on.
Overwhelming workloads, unrealistic expectations, unpredictable FA emotional abuse, and so on. Basically, BOA is the personal assistant, punching bag, and baby sitter for the FA. And yet, it depends on the FA you work with.
I’m thinking of leaving Edward Jones. So for I’ve spoken with LPL, Raymond James, and Ameriprise. I think that I might have a bit of Stockholm Syndrome after being here for well over a decade. For those former Jones folks who have bravely gone before me; How was your experience? How did the transition go? Do you miss Jones at all? How is life as an Indy vs Jones? Not unhappy here.. just bored, uninspired, and tired of the paternalistic HQ. Thanks for your help and insight.
