"Like any company, there are some great things and not so great things about it. As a company. I think Waddell and Reed is fine. But over time, management has made some changes on the corporate level, that don't really help the newer advisers. Especially if you are new to the industry. It really depends on the field leadership that you have in your office, they will make all the difference."
