Good for resume, and that is all it is good for.

College Financial Representative (Former Employee) Broomfield, CO

ProsThe company does a great job putting you through a training program and getting you excited about the opportunity. The company is very financially solid and job security seems high.

ConsTerrible position for someone starting out or in college. After training they give you absolutely no help and have high expectations. All they want to do is sell life insurance to your family and friends. Total joke of a system and they lost all my respect.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't say you enjoy to bring on a lot of interns and new financial reps to do anything but steal the clients for your top managers. Giving them 1/2 of the credit and money is a joke.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
