    I have been working at Equitable Advisors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High potential for growth in the financial practice you want to create, multiple tracks, and great coworkers. Company has been very supportive and flexible with staff during COVID and relatively speaking seemed better prepared to transition to remote work. Flexibility has remained after return to the office to work from either the office or home.

    Cons

    Hard work and a lot of continued training, especially the first year +
