Pros

It was a very relaxed environment with lots of young and usually friendly people.

Cons

There was a lot of menial labor. Management didn't always treat employees properly. LOTS of turnover in the brief period during which I interned there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire robots if you just want to bring in customers. It would be cheaper.

    Pros

    Ability to set your schedule. It was easy to get the job. They help you get licensed to sell mutual funds and life insurance.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth, just sell more. Basically you are self employed, no benefits, no healthcare etc. The training wasn't very good either. Older reps get your clients when you leave so they are not really motivated to help you.

    Pros

    Help you get licensed in series 6,63 and life insurance

    Cons

    It is pure commission. Not that many people last, they continually get new reps out of college, get as much business from immediate family and move on to new reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devote more time to staff and don't overpromise
