    Pros

    If your a self-motivated person who doesn't like boundaries this would be a great position for you. Time off during the day to be able to attend things for your children is flexible as well as an unlimited income potential, you are your own boss (to an extent)

    Cons

    Work in the evenings to be able to meet with clients, outside sales to build clientele, failure rate in the first five years is extremely high, it's more likely you won't make it as an advisor, income isn't stable, office is not provided by the company, self-employed.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to inform potential advisors about the income potential and how many people do NOT make it as an advisor and what type of personality is needed to be successful in this industry. My team did a great job of preparing me for this.

    Pros

    Near home. Many honest people that are employed.

    Cons

    No real training for the home office employees. A lot of uneducated employees. (ie. bad grammar). Tenure means more than experience or professionalism. Upper management rarely takes the side of the lower management and non-supportive of those on the frontline of management (ie. allowed employees to get away with disrespecting lower management)

    Advice to Management

    Create training progrom for home office, not just the field. Bonuses and raises should not just be based on tenure.
