I would appreciate advice from a seasoned Financial Advisor in regards to my career path. I was recently let go from one of the top 5 full-service brokerage firms due to a corporate restructure. I was there for 11 months and it was my first time as an Financial Advisor. After I passed all of the tests I was thrown out to the sharks. I met all of the average asset and revenue goals but was still included in the lay off :-( Now that I have experienced the environment of a major firm and how difficult it can be, I want to know if joining another top 5 firm is the right thing to do? I was offered a position with ML, but I'm holding off to make sure that it is the right career decision. I'm young, 27 yrs. old and want future success not instant gradification. Where would I be able to build a solid foundation? A bank BOA, Wells Fargo? ML? Charles Schwab?Please Help! Thanks!
