Considering working for them but have heard pretty negative things about their tech platform. (specifically I&#39;ve heard some stories about inaccurate performance reports being generated by the platform, etc). I&#39;ve also heard that high producing FAs get access to significantly more client information &amp; can do significantly more with the tech platform than other FAs. None of this is necessarily a dealbreaker for me but I do want to know what I&quot;m getting into technology-wise. Anyone have any experience with this?</p> </div><div class="og_rss_groups"></div> http://wealthmanagement.com/forums/whats-firms/mssb-reportingtech-platform#comments What's Up at Firms?
