    Easy job. Decent pay. Little bit boring and one dimensional.

    Pros

    By far the benefits are the best part of the job. 3 weeks paid vacation, 1 week sick paid vacation off the bat.

    Cons

    The work can be boring for somebody looking for excitement from their job. Very monotonous schedules... which can be your friend at times, and depressing other times. Soft selling is part of the job description but no compensation/bonus comes from it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was fine. Can't ask for much more. Good people.

    Pros

    entry level get series 7 and 63 licenses. good training. good experience in customer service. great if you are looking to get into sales. opportunity for future licenses (series 4, 24, ect.). good stepping stone (currently looking for another job)

    Cons

    micromanagement. breaks, lunch and start time are recorded to the second. compensation is low. will take years to earn decent living at FSR level. you potential ceiling will end at being either sales RM or a manager. creates a lot of turnover. currently looking for another job after 3 years, which is usually the case (which isn't a necessarily a con)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    manager should stick up for their reps more. be more of an advocate.
