    Health insurance is not provided. This is a contract sales position. Health insurance is subsidized for employees of the company

    First Command Financial Services Response

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on Glassdoor. I would like to clarify that we do offer health insurance and other benefits during the period in which Advisors are salaried employees building their business. Once Advisors have successfully transitioned to Independent Contractor status, they seek out their own benefits in the marketplace just like any self-employed professional.

    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.

  • Dec 19, 2016
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Business Technology Consultant in Fort Worth, Texas

    ESOP is great. All other benefits are not that great.

  • Dec 07, 2016
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Analyst in Fort Worth, Texas

    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.

  • Nov 02, 2016
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Associate in Washington, District of Columbia

    No health/medical benefits. 401K offered.

  • Mar 14, 2016
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Financial Advisor in San Antonio, Texas

    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.
