Great opportunity, only with better attention to producers

Financial Advisor (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsGreat compensation, benefits and retirement opportunities to agents who are serious about succeeding. Superior permanent Life products that are tops in industry. Well known brand that is conservative in a time when conservative means much to consumers. This company is there to support you if you understand the idea of "What you put in is what you get out".

ConsProducts outside permanent life products such as annuities need revamping to get more competitive with industry. The broker dealer needs to get in line with it's view on production as other top B.D's, not limiting Advisers in areas that other top B.D's approve of.

Management is only as good as the General Agent at the helm of the agency. A compensation structure based solely on commission does not address separate motivational factors and therefore, commission alone will not adequately motivate nor retain a sales force. When there is obvious examples of sarcasm, lack of a serious attitude, as well as a rather negative environment, this can be quite difficult in a career position as a sales professional that is already extremely difficult. This only creates a real and perceived distance between yourself and most team members, as witnessed by a needlessly excessive personnel turnover of higher producing agents, especially when it’s done on the heels of a preference for weak candidates. “Salespeople Don't Quit Companies, They Leave Managers.”

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your agents in a way that you (or best practices) expect these agents to pay attention to their top clients(remember the ones who are responsible for our employment through their premiums)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Unlimited potential, you can take days off without needing any… Cons: It is set up like a pyramid scheme. You have to pay to work here, anywhere from $300-500 a month. The worst part is everyone… Advice to Senior Management: Don't set new people up to fail and stop hiring… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
