Gained knowledge to help me determine my career path.

Intern (Former Employee) Manhattan, KS

ProsIf 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)

ConsWork 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Tenure means more than experience or professionalism.… Advice to Senior Management: Create training progrom for home office, not just the field.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
