    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Waddell & Reed for less than a year

    Pros

    The people at Waddell and Reed are very friendly, helpful, and sociable. You can always go to advisers and ask questions about the job, career advise, or even personal social questions and they are happy to answer them.

    Cons

    The company's culture was very relaxed, hard-working, and energetic. As an intern however, there wasn't much job to be done. I helped mostly with administrators answering calls, preparing brochures of financial products, and making schedules for the managers. I wish I had done more work related to finance but since advisers are related to sales there is not much for you to learn financial aspects.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Waddell & Reed for less than a year

    Pros

    You are able to set your own hours and pick your own clients. Through commission, you are rewarded for hard work.

    Cons

    Salary is entirely commission based. This causes the job to be more focused on the sales aspect of the field than the actual advising aspect.
