I have been working at First Command full-time (more than an year)

Pros

First Command works with the military officers. They have a niche market in this sense and have good brand awareness. I would recommend this job to someone starting off in the industry.

Cons

A small company with little room to advance to corporate. That being said it is not a bad place to become a successful independent advisor.

    I worked at First Command full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free gym and covered parking.

    Cons

    They don't provide training to employees, they micro manage but with lack of direction or goals, there is a lot of finger pointing and management does not want to take responsibility. 2% to 0% on employee pay raises. Executives have a lot of off site meetings with big budget meals. Depressing atmosphere, lots of people always coughing and sneezing. No career opportunities, long hours, and 1950's culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to clean out executives and be more progressive.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
