    I have been working at Hoopis Financial Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Although Hoopis Financial Group is a general agency of MassMutual, a large fortune 100 company, they have done a great job at making the Chicago offices unique and a small business atmosphere. Every person that works here matters, and you can feel that in your everyday life. Pete Hoopis has a great plan for this agency, has proven himself to be successful and can lead the office in a positive manner. The staff and leadership are very experienced, that you know you are in great hands when taking on a tough career as a financial advisor.

    Cons

    Pete Hoopis came over to MassMutual in 2012 and took over the Chicago agency. Within 2 1/2 years he also opened up a Deerfield, Naperville and Santa Monica office. This is a growing firm that is still testing out some kinks. Some people may look at that in 2 different ways. 1-think of it like a start up- trying new and different things to see what works, there are changes. 2-be part of something where you can help build a business, have the chance to voice your opinion and hopefully make changes for the better.

    Pros

    The company wants you to build your business how you see fit.
    They support you in your endeavors to further your financial planning knowledge.
    Great company culture with fun quarterly outings.

    Cons

    It's tough to get your business off the ground within financial services in-general.
    It's a 100% commission position.
    If you don't hit certain goals, certain compensation can be taken away from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would definitely recommend telling your employees up-front what kind of contact they are getting into. There are ways that the company can come back to you to take compensation back from you. Neither they nor I knew this before setting up the compensation structure.
