Big promises - not much else

Financial Representative (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

ProsYou get a good base knowledge of the industry, but if you are interested in doing the investment side of things, go elsewhere - North Star expects you to peddle insurance first with the rest of their "comprehensive" advice coming second. Also, you get no salary. So if you are considering a career here, have about 5-7 months of your expenses saved up

ConsManagement doesn't give you the support you need to succeed. They will answer questions, sometimes - but if you are supposed to have something done and don't know how to do it, do not expect management to take the time to teach you. They could care less - you are replaceable to them.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to recognize and support those individuals that will succeed. Practice what you preach - if you are going to tell your advisers to be organized and respect other's time, they will expect you to do the same

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
