Great place to start in Financial Services but can differ by location

Financial Planner (Former Employee)
Albany, NY

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

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

Commission based salary may be difficult for some people

Advice to Senior ManagementHave 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
