The article presents the findings from the 2010 Financial Planning Salary Survey, which examines the drivers of financial advisers' job satisfaction. Results show a high number of responders claiming work environment and compensation as the factors that contribute to their satisfaction with the financial planning practice. However, lack of opportunities for advancement is found as the key factor for those who are less satisfied with their job. Individuals who are experiencing an increase in compensation and benefits are much more likely to be satisfied than those experiencing a decrease. Additionally, responsibilities such as compliance, buying and selling practices and administrative assistance contribute to the less satisfaction of the individuals.
