    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.
