Pros

You 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

Cons

Management 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 ManagementAdvice

Take 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

    Pros

    Ability to study for Series 7&66 and Life and Health

    Cons

    Office dynamics made it a unberable place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a training program designed for newly grads and do not tell individuals to take out a personal loan of 50k to stay in this career.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for advancement and a lot of recognition. Good balance between working hard and playing hard. Very competent leadership and a fun culture. Great opportunity to learn and work the same time.

    Cons

    A lot of hard work. If you are not comfortable with sales then you will be way out of your comfort zone. Ask a lot of questions before you start in this career or you could be disappointed.
