It was not my best experience.

Financial Services Representative (Former Employee)
Syracuse, NY

I worked at First Investors Corporation as a contractor for less than a year

ProsEthical company with a lot of good products.
Friendly people and office environment.
Unlimited income potential as with many financial companies.

ConsPure commission makes it tough to get started.
You have to generate your own leads for the most part.
Too much micromanagement on the part of branch managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be some kind of base pay or a training stipend at the very least.
More support for reps with respect to finding leads.
