    Pros

    - Commissioned based jobs have higher payouts than salaried positions - bonuses on top of commission are generous - company provides a lot of travel incentives (in the past they've done st. maarten, puerto rico and for 2013 have a contest for bahamas and maui) - A lot of room for advancement, an easier way to earn six figures than a salaried position will allow - flexible work schedule - tax write-offs - can build your own portfolio - are able to help others while building wealth for yourself -must be confident and articulate (you are managing client assets, why should they give you money?) presentation is key First Investors just merged with a fraternal organization called Foresters which offers member benefits no other insurance company does. In addition, the company has been revamped and is working on a variety of mutual funds in addition to current holdings and is looking to become more technologically advanced through use of iPads. First Investors has a bright future ahead and our goal is the be the premier financial group for middle class America.

    Cons

    - not everyone can work a commissioned based job - takes time, but hard work pays off
