I worked at North Star Resource Group full-time

Pros

The day I left that place.

Cons

Ponzi scheme structure. You bring two friends in, they each bring in two friends, etc. I feel horrible for their clients. Always getting slammed into highly commissionable life insurance products that don't make sense for their situation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look in the mirror and slap yourself.

    I worked at North Star Resource Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of access to Sr. Management. You get a good luck at what a full-time position at the company is really like. It is very possible to get a job offer after the internship program is finished.

    Cons

    Not a lot of variety in the internship program. It mostly entails doing the same thing (data entry) day-after-day.

    I have been working at North Star Resource Group

    Pros

    They work with you. The portland branch is growing and presents great opportunities for the broad minded. The people are friendly and great to work with.

    Cons

    Communication between the branch offices is not always great. I believe this is mostly because NorthStar is a fairly large comany.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire another staff member. The staff needs a little help, even if it is just one person at part time.
