Good company for the right person

Financial Representative (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
