    Pros

    None, unless you're inheriting a book of business.

    Cons

    Did not pay for licensing exams, no support structure, basically given a phone and told to sell securities. No requirements for hiring, only pass exams. Employees are not a concern to them, only if you can sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relocate HQ from Kansas City to NY

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2.  

    Caring staff, client needs are always put first. Lots of ways to make money with the company.
