Financial Advisor Reviews

What is it like working as a Financial Advisor?
Financial Advisor in Waterloo:
"Rewarding"
Pros: Meeting and building relationships with people

Financial Advisor in Peace River:
"Demanding, multi-tasking high sales job"
Pros: The chance to help people improve their financial situation.
Cons: As I get better at my job, I'm farther away from people that need help and dealing with more affluent customers that are often too suspicious to even accept any advice or suggestions I make to improve their financial situation.
