As some of you know, I am starting at a wirehouse on Monday and resigning from MassMutual. I know that oftentimes firms come after you for training costs. I was careful to pay for all my own licensing fees just in case I decided to resign. What can I expect as far as litigation?Question #2: What is the best way to resign? (In a way that my licenses will be easily transferred)

Equally as helpful as what you just posted, but funnier.

So you're simply another idiot.  I'll add you to the list.

Your list is for homos, old man.  Go hang out at the Bird Cage.

Didn't I tell you how to do it in a PM? Why are you wasting people's time? Noone gives a sh*t about you at your old company. You don't make them any money. Your ego is wrong about you having to have a great gameplan. Do you think they're going to be stunned at the giant sucking sound of productivity leaving the building? Get real and quit calling yourself "closer", unless you are getting closer to wash out.

I agree with Bobby on this.  Pack up your stuff in the middle of the night, leave the key on the desk, and have sex in the office before you take off.  That's what I did.

Isn't there an employment contract of some kind?

For him there are two options:
1.  He is not successful, therefore ex-broker won't care that he leaves...they would probably throw a party if he asked.
2.  He is successful and the wirehouse knows this.  They want him to bring over assets and will supply good lawyers to get the advisor and his clients.

Good luck. If you get a chance, don't forget to rub your wee-wee on the mouthpiece of your manager's phone. That'll make you smile every time you think of him talking on your bonephone.

That's good advice, but he should have been doing that every quarter for the past couple years anyway...

As an adult man, with a family and children, what do you find funny about that sophomoric comment?

It's funnier if you actually have a penis. You'll just have to trust us.

That you, DAtoo, were a manager, and, most likely, used a "bonephone" to talk with your wife.  I can assure you, if you're half as annoying in person as you are here, you have spoken into a "bonephone."

He's not successful.  We know this.  If he were, he wouldn't be switching over after being there for three months.

That's true, I have not been successful. I have also not been unsuccessful. I simply leveraged my way into a wirehouse and will begin my career on monday. I am pretty stoked to get going with it.

Very good.  I needed a laugh.  Glad to see you are not taking yourself too seriously.
If you did not sign a contract with the cost to leave spelled out, I would say you are fine.

Yes I did. I forgot that all of management was out on a trip to Lake Geneva. My "mentor" was out as well. I told all the office staff and left a resignation letter on his desk. Gave back all the materials and data. You are all right on, I doubt they will care.I start Morgan Stanley at 9am on Monday.

I start Morgan Stanley at 9am on Monday. Be there at 7:00. They expect all brokers to be there to listen to the morning squawk box. Good luck!
