Lofty promises, but you're on your own

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsFlexible hours to plan your week.
A lot of training and study material to help prepare and sell investments/insurance

ConsLack of any sort of upper management or leadership. If you need help, very few are willing to donate their time to help a new person. The company attracts many new talents with promises of high salary but they don't tell you that the people "mentoring" you on all your initial business get a large chunk of your commission. Be prepared to sell to your friends and family first. The employee turnover rate is extremely high.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of having employees who manage many other accounts try to help the new people, having someone in the office who knows the regulations and has sales experience to help new employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Account Representative (Former Employee) New York, NY

    I worked at First Investors Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros: Great study material to get you educated on investments and life insurance… Cons: Management only looks out for themselves. They throw you to the wolves and only go to see the clients… Advice to Senior Management: Pay attention to the newbies. They are putting money into your pocket for a good chunk of time before they move up the ranks. Don't… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
