ProsWorking as a Financial Professional here provides you the flexibility to set your own schedule therefore your ability to time manage plays an important factor in your success. Also, if you are good at sales and networking, there is the opportunity to be rewarded through compensation and large bonuses. Great reputation nationally in the insurance, annuity and investment world.

ConsIt is a commission paying job so if you can not generate business through your network or leads provided or paid for, your length of stay here will be short lived. This is a job you must be passionate about doing and if so, have the potential for a prosperous future with great returns down the road.
