Profit sharing tied to performance.
There are no benefits offered for admin assist.
Health insurance is not provided. This is a contract sales position. Health insurance is subsidized for employees of the company
There are little benefits to speak of. New financial advisors are expected to become independent contractors within a year. If not, they are let go.
The best part about the benefits is hands down the the ESOP program, but it is confusing to figure out, and only really pays off if your their for a very long time. Health/dental insurance is decent coverage, but very expensive. No matching on the 401k. PTO and holidays are reasonable.
ESOP is great. All other benefits are not that great.
ESOP is the best part, but takes several years to have any value. Medical insurance is a joke. To have a baby, it cost $18,000.
No health/medical benefits. 401K offered.
The best thing about First Command is the corporate culture. They care about their people and they care about their customers. The compensation reflects their care for the people because the vast majority of the company's profits are returned to the advisor force in the form of both immediate and deferred compensation.
First Command offers an automatic 15% ESOP contribution for all full time employees. Other benefits include paid disability, cheap insurance, 401k, and yearly pay raises of about 3% and bonus. Health insurance is the biggest weakness in the benefits package. The low deductible option for a spouse and kids runs about $1100/month!
