    Pros

    With a positive work ethic and a never give up attitude, it is possible to develop quite a nice career. Decent training program to all new Representative and they will pay for your licenses.

    Cons

    This is a place where you get out what you put in. If you are not well connected and lack the will to network, financial services may not be the career for you.

    Advice to Management

    Mentoring is the key to develop new financial reps. Sometimes it helps to take a new hire under your wing. Develop a program which will encourage this.

    Pros

    The quality of the company and its products is phenomenal. They also have a defined benefit plan and another retirement plan that you don't have to fund.

    Cons

    No salary and not much support on the investment side of the business. The main focus is insurance, which is fine but they should have the knowledge and support system to teach you more about investments. Also, your managing partner and managing director get a very substantial portion of your commission and don't offer enough support to justify this.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a salary and help people get started by referrals from older reps.
