Great Starting Point For Financial Services

Financial Services Representative (Former Employee) Woodbridge, NJ

ProsThe training was amazing and provides you with everything from licensure, product knowledge, and sales training. There is a lot of support and great ideas that are passed around the company to help you build your business. Also compensation for mutual fund sales is the best in the business.

ConsToo many meetings, full commission, no benefits, too many expectations from management to hit your goals. Certain managers may try to take advantage of you.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop taking advantage of your reps. The young reps barely make enough money as it is.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
