    Pros

    Surrounded by professional people and the company culture is great.

    Cons

    Lots of door to door canvassing required to create new business.

    Advice to Management

    May want to look for new ways to train advisors other than door to door canvassing as this seems to have become a bit antiquated as times have changed as well as no soliciting laws.

    Pros

    A good opportunity for hardcore sales people. Great support from HQ.

    Cons

    You can do very well with EDJ as a Financial Advisor if you are a constant sales hustler. The new Financial Advisor gets a ton of training on sales but very little on actual investment knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your new Financial Advisors better. I did well but was unhappy with door knocking and the constant prospecting and low income. Was very surprised they didn't conduct an exit interview when I left since they survey everything else.
