      Treats client great, admin not so much

      Jun 9, 2021 - BOA Branch Office Administrator in Windsor, ON

      Pros

      Amazing training. Fabulous support from head office - can pick up the phone any time and get help with a process or procedure

      Cons

      Company likes to talk about 'the branch team' and how important we are as a team, and how important the BOA is . They recommend that advisors give 10% of their bonus to the BOA. So, when a FA gets say an 80K bonus....and he gives his BOA $750...and expects us to be SOOOO appreciative....sigh. Its an embarrassment to work for a company that helps clients reach retirement, however the administration staff will struggle. Keep in mind its not all Financial Advisors are like this, but for the most part they are. If I were younger, I would be going where I was treated fairly regarding compensation.

      Good Company if you are a Financial Advisor

      May 8, 2021 - Senior Branch Office Administrator in Toronto, ON

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great systems set up for teaching the Branch Office Administrator (BOA). Good for people who like to work independently.

      Cons

      Focus is on well being of the Advisors, even though at least 50% of the work is done by the BOA, the salary is very low and bonuses depend on the Advisors they work with.

      Pros

      This is a very well-organized, structured company. Everything is done by the book. Clients are generally respectful and friendly; it's not a stressful job at all.

      Cons

      Admin pay is lower than industry average. I'm really great at my job so I'm looking for a position that pays better.

      No room for growth- depends Financial Advisors Success

      Apr 28, 2021 - Branch Office Administrator in Edmonton, AB
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits, fairly good training, great clients

      Cons

      The success and pay of a Branch Office Administrator depends on the success of the Financial Advisor. The FA position could be a revolving door which means as a BOA you do not get ahead nor earn bonuses. The BOA does the majority of the work (that does not involve a license) but the pay does not reflect that. Branches are typically 2 people so if you do not get along you are stuck. FA's may have a hard time meeting goals which means often times they blame lack of success on their BOA.
