Here's the deal. Be prepared to buy a lot of American Express or IDS products. IDS is a proprietary company. There is push to have them sell company related investments. Also, IDS is a always hiring firm. HOw can they do this? People are always leaving the firm because they can't hack it.

Just keep it in mind. g
