I have been working at National Financial Partners

Pros

Very flexible hours. They pay good and the turnover is high so it's easy to move up if you can stand it. It's easy to shine if you are halfway decent at your job. They use the most recent technologies.

Cons

There is no training and not many experts to learn from so you are on your own as far as learning new stuff. Lots of dead weight in the staff so most of your coworkers are vampires. Management really doesn't care that everyone is unhappy. A lot of jobs have been moved offshore.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You could do the same amount of work with half the people if you ditched the dead weight.

    I worked at National Financial Partners

    Pros

    The people work tireless to provide exceptional customer support and service
    Good benefits
    The firm is growing in the right direction

    Cons

    The firm is still fairly small when compared to larger companies, but management has taken on this mentality; as a result many layers of reporting take place, too many meetings

    Pros

    Being able to tell the NFP story. Very powerful selling tool.

    Cons

    The individual firm structure is their biggest drawback. Many of the firm principals are complete hacks who only care where the next buck comes from. No promotions from a firm to Austin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick out your under-performing deadbeat principals.
