    Management are liars

    Pros

    None to say about them

    Cons

    Partners and mp's will make you believe that you can earn 6 figures. I was a TAS agent for 2 years and no new agents came close. Alan and Darin both tried to get me to stay by promising me leads, ha, never got any until I threatened to leave!

    Also, they helped all agents become proactive at year-end to fatten their own wallets.

    Stay away - especially in westchester and pennsylvania

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire real recruiters who tell the truth.

    Pros

    They do a great job training employees, and have some of the best training staff.

    Cons

    Some dishonest people work for this comapny and push products that clients do not need, however they are the minority less than 5%. Managers put pressure on you to spend your money in order to make money. Pay is 100% commisson it is a high pressure sales environment with a, "what have you done lately" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starting agents need mentors and a base salary.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
