Pros

First Command provides an excellent opportunity for an entrepreneurial minded individual. It is extremely rewarding to work with an underserved market. This is an ideal job for people who enjoy working closely with military service members.

Cons

Starting your business requires a major commitment of time and energy. I recommend potential advisors strongly consider if they are suited for a sales driven industry.

Advice to Management

Always keep our client's best interests in mind when making management decisions. This focus will help the company grow.

    Pros

    Compensation is fair compared to work load. Family oriented, employee loyalty, Employee Stock Option Plan is very generous, they care about employee health, supportive of improving one's knowledge

    Cons

    The company as a whole struggles with change, even if it is critical to the growth of the company. Salaries are low compared to the market and even lower if you are promoted within.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending money on marketing ops with minimal net gain. Invest more in the employees and stop the brain drain.
