    Great place for getting trained before going independent to make real money and have fun.

    Pros

    It is a great place to get industry training. Afterward three years experience one should go with an independent and build one's own book of business.

    Cons

    Poor management on all levels. They promote the "limited partnership" opportunity. However, one has to buy [when offered] with one's own money or borrow the money. I went independent and had ownership worth +$275,000 (as valued by FP Transitions) within 6 months of accounts following me.

    Pros

    Stable company. Conservative. Good training for young graduates.

    Cons

    Low compensation comparing to other companies / industry.
    Large gap between regular employees and general partners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the management does not have good leadership skills. Thos people became GPs when company was much smaller, and now are on leadership possitions, without having the appropriate skills. More training needed for them.
