ehhh

Financial Representative (Former Employee)
Irvine, CA

Pros- Potential to make good income, but that's if you are highly connected coming in

Cons- Constantly at the office instead of selling
- Dying industry
- you are asked to constantly hound friends and family
- You are told you can make your own schedule, that's false

Advice to Senior Management- The Irvne office in general needs new management. The managing director makes claims that are totally impossible and he has a huge napoleon complex. I would also reccomend leaving the 16th century thinking.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Makes you access your market ( Family and Friends) - Making connections with these people will help you in everything you do after this… Cons: Makes you start conversations with family and friends in order to sell… Advice to Senior Management: Be more upfront upon hiring No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
