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

Pros

Excellent mentoring from managers to make sure you are being the best possible advisor you can be, Potential for high growth in business. Very good training and get licenses paid for by company.

Cons

The work/life balance is not the best. Expect to put in 50 hours a week with low pay. Reason for this is because they are paying for your licenses and when you start to make full commissions the expectation of doubling and tippling base salary is high.

Positive Outlook

    Pros

    The pros of this job are that you can be as ambitious as you want and work your butt off and most likely see great success. There are some minor rewards for hard work such as an annual company trip if you qualify, some expenses are paid.

    Cons

    if you have a good mentor there aren't many cons. If you're mentor isn't into it or quits the company while you are studying for the exams or just get going, that's going to be tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, I think management is doing a good job.

    Pros

    Once you do establish yourself at this company, its looks like a great place to work. Not a very large office so work environment is very casual yet professional. The ability to work on your time seems very enticing.

    Cons

    Its getting to the pros that's the difficult part. You must have very strong sales skills and a very large network of people who would have enough money to actually invest. You must also learn the art of cold calling because you will have to start out doing that. You have to pay for licensure, but it doesn't sound too bad because accountants have to pay to get their CPA and financial analysts have to pay for the CFA exams as well. And be prepared to work long and hard in the beginning.
