Over 4,700 associates joined the ranks of the country’s fourth largest financial services firm last year: 75% of new financial advisors came from employee referrals. With more than 11,900 brokerage offices advising some 7 million individual investors, the firm fosters camaraderie by hosting summer regional meetings for financial advisors and their families at a resort for a weekend full of music, food, games and swimming and golf, business meetings and award presentations. When they started this practice in 1988, about 3,000 employees attended. Last year, 229 regional gatherings drew more than 37,000 employees. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
