    Pros

    The benefits are great. The ability to work from home depends on the department you work for. The salaries are good.

    Cons

    You work very hard. You seem like you never stop working. You even take the work stress with you. I am sure it depends on the position you hold but if you want to make good money... you will work for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the jobs in America and stop sending them to India and Ireland. Help our economy.

    Pros

    Management is very supportive and intelligent. A very professional environment to learn and build a career. The company is ethical and very compliant with all the rules and regulations. Opportunity is there if you are willing to make the effort, if not they will not let you coast so bring your best game. Training and mentoring is available to all and you will find it some of the best in the industry. This is a very cooperative environment and team atmosphere much like being in college or the service working and helping each other succeed. Working with your clienst and helping them succeed is the most rewarding part.

    Cons

    There is a massive amount of learning and examination to be prepared for this position but if you enjoy being challenged this could be the career. This is a very hard career to launch and the hours can be long. Compensation is earned (commissions) not given but there are many revenue streams possible.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to help launch more independent offices financially it is very difficult and expensive to start a new business. Provide more marketing support (Co-op) we are marketing both of us.
