I worked at First Investors Corporation full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Truly limitless income potential.
Opportunity for success for the right person.

Cons

Conflict of interest between selling propietary funds and outside company funds with more options and sometimes better performance.
Management totally pitches all the positive things that "could" happen by working for this company. These things are likely not to happen, at least within the first 3 years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Finish program design before implementation. The current training program is still being ironed out, while trying to squeeze new trainees through an ambiguous pipeline.

    Pros

    You know what NOT to look for in an employer

    Cons

    Everything...Slimy biz model which helps kids out of college get their immediate family to invest (in their fund family only) and force them to sell insurance b/c of its higher commission structure. Once you burn out, all assets stay with them, even if you do withdrawal your investments, they've already made their fee.(A win-win for them,while you sit there with lint in your pockets)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying
