I have been working at First Investors Corporation as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The company culture is great. Managers are willing to have fun with employees. The saying "work hard, play hard" is perfect for FIC.

Cons

As an apprentice, we didn't get paid, so we had to find other jobs that were willing to work around our minimal schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want your employees to take you seriously, you need to act like a professional at all times.

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

    Pros

    Goal orientated, no cap on how much you can make, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    You have to make a very large investment of your personal assets and time before seeing any results after a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less empty promises and be more upfront about the workload and costs.
