Private Wealth Advisor

4.0 of 5 stars

August 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Very entrepreneurial role. Great benefits (16 wks maternity leave and also offer paternity leave, 401k match % of salary). Work/life balance is better than other parts of the bank. Very much a meritocracy.

Downers

High pressure and expectations to build a book of business. A lot of turnover in the role for new advisors. Very competitive environment. One of the few post-MBA roles that expects cold-calling.

Advice to Candidates

For the private wealth advisor role, make sure you know your skillset and what the role fully requires before you accept an offer. It's a dream job for those who will succeed but it is very difficult to succeed and takes a particular skillset and amount of grit.

Excellent foundation for professional and personal growth
