Pros

For an internship it paid very well. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help with most anything.

Cons

The whole internship felt rushed. I never felt like I had the opportunity to develop relationships with my clients that would lead to long-term success. Management was more focused on financial benefits than anything else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the 10 lives quota for interns. Let them get any license that would help them and their clients.

    It is a 100% commission based.
    Selling to friends and family initially.
    Be able to take a lot of NO's
