Pros

Excellent training program for learning how to sell financial products
Better than average comp plan for entry level sales agent
Good product set to offer

Cons

Comp plan gets tough after initial period. You have to have a pipeline.

Commission based salary may be difficult for some people

Advice to Management

Have a better program for developing sales leaders and retaining talent. The best sales people often leave and the managers are picked from those that stay around the longest and don't always earn it.

    Pros

    I learned a lot and worked on real projects. I was treated with respect and it wasn't a demanding job. My bosses were very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Not the most outgoing people, so it made for a quiet work day. They also don't seem to be in a hiring phase.

    Advice to Management

    Improve collaborative work environment, boost employee morale

    Pros

    140 years of experience, good financial strength

    Cons

    Lately a lot of Upper management change

    Advice to Management

    Our Brand was built on relationships, reliablility and loyalty -- if you don't continue some level of continuity internally (which does not seem to be the case lately), then you will undermine this strength. We are becoming too top-heavy - leat the mid-level talent develop and lead.
