Great Company, Fantastic Opportunity, IF You Are Willing To Work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lone Tree, CO

ProsA great way to get into the Financial Services Industry and learn some of the most important life lessons about saving money and preparing for your and your family's future. The management staff is all very well informed and more than willing to go out of their way and help you with just about anything. If you do your part, the opportunity to grow with the company is amazing and you can earn your promotions and raises in a very short amount of time. Ultimately I see myself running a division of the company in a pretty short period of time.

ConsSimilar to college, it costs some money to get accredited. It costs a ton less obviously, but there is that initial cost ($489). However the company will bonus you $500 on your 1st promotion to try and help you offset that cost. Also, it is not a typical work schedule, so you have to be self motivated to schedule appointments, see clients, and get your work done. If you need micromanaging, this is not the position for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold your reps accountable and make sure they are doing what they say they are. This will help them succeed and thrive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Full of ego-maniacs who see finance and sales as " the ends justify the means"
