    Pros

    Could be a DECENT place to start a sales job

    Cons

    It's all about Prospecting. YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR LICENSES, the company does not sponsor you fully.
    Commission structure the only way you will make a living.

    Advice to Management

    Awful management, transparency is one thing, but it should never lead to humiliating or belittling


  3. Working with clients to help them achieve their financial goals

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    You have to get your series 7, 66, and life/health license
    They reimburse you for the tests after 6 months
    Potential to make a lot of money
    They offer strong financial platforms
    Office atmosphere is great

    Cons

    You have to front all the money for your certifications
    It's either 100% commission or salary/half commission
    Expenses are high (they pay for nothing!)
    Management is terrible and so is training. Their training just consists of pitching life insurance to your clients. its the same thing over and over
    Everyone just cares about themselves/lots of competition
    If you can't produce a lot then don't take this job. You will have more in deductions in your check each month then you will be making
    Most importantly you have to validate to keep your job! if you aren't producing enough then you could lose your job

    Advice to Management

    Fix the training program. Training should cover things that people in there first couple years need help on like different yellow pad techniques, how to properly fill out paperwork, especially transfer paperwork for other companies. Not focusing on Pension Max or advanced things with life insurance.
