    Pros

    Ability to have true control over your practice and focus on your desired areas whether it is investments, financial planning, insurance, or retirement services. Great culture and the best insurance products on the market. The richmond agency had great training.

    Cons

    Like most firms, you are completely responsible for generating leads and it is 100% commission after a financing period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a more uniform training program nationwide and make it easier for agents to switch agencies.

    A couple of good reasons to work here is for success, professionalism and top tier work environment.

    The biggest challenge of working here was not getting a lot of help prior to testing.

    Set up some way of getting help while preparing for the many exams one will have to take.

    Pros

    Great training program. Good experienced Advisors willing to work with you and help you to get your business started. Competitive products.

    Cons

    Being 100% commission is daunting but ultimately they believe that it will motivate you to earn and learn faster. It also creates extra pressure of not making money for awhile possibly .
