Excellent training, not much support

Insurance Agent (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsI received really excellent training from the staff at my office -- sales, service, financial, all the basics of the job. They also sponsored my Series 6, 63, and 7 licenses with no questions asked.

ConsCommission-only, so if sales is not you thing then look elsewhere. The only real problem I had was that I always felt like I was on my own -- for all the talk about how I have a team supporting me and backing me up, I was never able to make that help materialize when it was actually needed.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time with new employees to guide them on a path to success. You're putting a lot of money into training them, why do you cut them loose to sink or swim without help?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
