    I worked at Foundation Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    - Company Culture
    - Great training and support
    - Continuous refreshers on a weekly basis
    - Bonus structure for licensed employees
    - Atmosphere and co-workers were great
    - Philanthropic involvement
    - Benefits
    - Clearly defined promotion track

    Cons

    - Saturdays required sometimes
    - Pay was only "OK" unless you hit bonus
    - Some managers like to mricro-manage which can stunt your growth as a professional
    - Too much focus on "the numbers" ,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Biggest advice would have been to embrace purchase loans and not focus soley on refinancies, as the market is/was turning away from them.
    - Great job on the company culture, it really felt like there was a level of caring and concern that isn't present in many places. Keep up the great work.
    - Be honest about Satrudays, they are a punishment for not hitting sales targets, don't insult people by trying to dress mandatory Saturdays up as an "opportunity" to bring in business, the numbers don't support that notion.
    - Speaking of numbers; sales numbers work over time, but in a particular 2hr time span the numbers don't always pan out. Save the threats and lofty speeches for weekly, or monthly reviews and don't sweat small inconsistencies throughout the day
