Good learning experience

Financial Advisor (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at First Command full-time for more than a year

Pros-A "salary assistance" helps you when first starting off
-You get to know the company "higher-ups" pretty well
-Good people to work with

Cons-You need to be able to sell insurance. And lots of it. That is where you earn most of your money early in your career.
-Each district is a separate situation, you may have a great manager who helps, you may have a bad manager who does not

Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure that all managers have similar approaches to their advisors. Lots of variety seen in the managers of the divisions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
