    Pros

    Ability to have true control over your practice and focus on your desired areas whether it is investments, financial planning, insurance, or retirement services. Great culture and the best insurance products on the market. The richmond agency had great training.

    Cons

    Like most firms, you are completely responsible for generating leads and it is 100% commission after a financing period.

    Advice to Management

    have a more uniform training program nationwide and make it easier for agents to switch agencies.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to start a business without much start-up costs. The management is engaged in my success. If you go all in, it will pay off. Great company. Great Products. Great support.

    Cons

    This is a very difficult career to get started. But everyone knows this going in. The people that complain about this company or any other similar type of company did not do what they said they were going to do and weren't tough enough to do this anywhere, much less here. It does not happen overnight.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the people from the firm who don't do what they say they are going to do. Spend more time with the people who are making every effort to make this work. Keep growing and telling your great story.

    Pros

    A couple of good reasons to work here is for success, professionalism and top tier work environment.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge of working here was not getting a lot of help prior to testing.

    Advice to Management

    Set up some way of getting help while preparing for the many exams one will have to take.

    Pros

    You can learn a few things for example planning. You learn why these insurnace companies make so much money.

    Cons

    Training sucked. If i didnt have previous experince i dont know how i would make it. They charge agents for everything and dont help out. Might as well open your own firm. Managers only want to sell whole life

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus just on one product. Invest money for traning. Help agents delegate tasks
