Call me crazy, burin at a wire now and I'm above my hurdles (around $4mm after my 1st year), but my manager is a real a--hole. I really like the single branch setup at EDJ. I realize that every firm has a decent amount off BS that has to be dealt with, but being in my own office seems like it would make it much better. My 5 year plan is to get to $40mm and then go indie, so I'm really looking for a good stepping stone.
At my current wire I have 2 years of salary left, and that salary is about twice what EDJ pays. The only way I could afford to move to EDJ is if I were given an office with at least $15mm in place. Do they ever give a transferring rookie FA an office with some assets in place on day 1 of the transition?
