    Friendly people, advancement is in fact possible, great pay, great benefits. This company helped me when I was being transferred from state to state by letting me work in both states. They are so nice and they really look out for their employees. :)

    Cons

    I am trying to think of any and I honestly can't

    Pros

    The only Pro was the 401k

    Cons

    Managers can come and go as they please. Managers can yell and scream and corporate will do nothing about it. Once you make a manager mad he will find any reason to have you fired. I was in an office open less than 2 years and 3 had been fired! Standing up to our manager is a big no at this company because corporate doesnt care what you say only the manager. And the bonus????????? Good luck the manger strings you along and says its the best quarter but NO bonus apparently corporate takes it all in fees etc.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees and not just what the managers have to say!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Once you are an exempt employee, you are in the bonus pool. Health, dental, vision and some life insurance is paid by the company up to a certain amount. The executives of the company are very personable.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to move up within the company. There is not a science behind the bonus pool. Basically the boss' favorite gets the highest bonus. Brokers are on call 24/7. You will get calls in the middle of the night and on weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a scale of measure for bonus'. Also give more opportunities to advance within the company.
