It was always a great place to work, but it's going through major changes turning the company upside down.

Pros

There are alot of great opportunities and different projects to work on.

Cons

As I was always told, if you want to get anywhere in the company, you need a hook, someone that will promote you. It's very difficult to move ahead without that. I've seen it first hand quite often even with the latest layoff where some were saved and others weren't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch out for the hippocrits that talk a good line but aren't always the most trustworthy.

    Pros

    The most trusted finacial company, highest rating than any other companies. Great training.

    Cons

    FBI background check - very hard to get in. Training starts from very basic. Cookie cutter work flow model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each agent is different in strength and market. Managers have to be aware of that and adjust managing method. Cookie-cutter aproach won't work.
