    Pros

    Create your own schedule, paid for me to attain financial licenses

    Cons

    Exceptionally difficult to succeed, company wants you to use/sell to everyone you know, if you leave the company they will continue to bother your contacts, all about hitting sales numbers with limited guidance

    Pros

    You are given enough ability to go make the company $$ but it costs a lot of money to run your office.

    Cons

    There are NO ethics. If you are a producer you get special treatment and management will look the other way if there are indescressions. So if you have no morals or ethics the Minnesota general office is the place for you. I was there 11 plus years and gave it all up not to be associated with them anymore

    Advice to Management

    It's been given and ignored at the GO level repeatedly.

    Pros

    The pay is good and there are a lot of good people that work you. There is a generous vacation policy, but benefits are being eroded year after year.

    Cons

    senior management is out of touch, there have been many re-orgs and lay-offs over the past 5 years. No stability, and no job security.
