    Could not get my licensed process

    Financial Advisor (Former Employee) Buffalo, NY

    ProsOffer an opportunity for the entrepreneurial minded

    ConsAfter passing my exam in 3 weeks, I spent the next 3 months waiting for the license to be processed, even though New York State insisted I was ready to start. Huge stress case. Incredible waste of my life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your logistics people in gear.

    The worst internship I've ever done

    Financial Representative Intern (Former Employee) Lutherville Timonium, MD

    ProsGood work/life balance. Really laid-back (to a fault). Pretty much free-rein of the entire office.

    ConsReally money-centered. Unhelpful when it comes to training, they expect you to accost and bring in your friends and family so that you can be trained, while they get the benefits. They have no formal training program. No leadership or path to follow. Pretty much could do whatever I wanted, no one was checking to make sure I was doing any sort of work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of selling how much 'money' I'll be making and how 'rich' I'm going to be, why not tell me about the products and what I'll be doing to help the little man get over the difficulties of insurance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
