Continual growth & support. Can advance to different levels of BOA & even home office positions, both at the headquarters or at home.
Sometimes miss having fellow employees around.

They will get you through your Series 7, 63, and Life Insurance Licensing, and teach you the basics of selling. Not many companies will do that for beginners anymore.
You do have to sign a 24 month agreement to pay them back for the expense of training you if you leave before that time. Also, if you become a good producer, as I did, they will Fight you, and turn on you, and keep your clients if you try to leave. They are evil. They constantly tout their "Family Friendly culture", but it's more like a Mafia family if you decide to go. No one will ever speak to you again, and the company will try to rub you out, since you will now be in competition for the clients you have brought into the firm. Pay as an employee is only about 35%, and you will starve. I worked night & day to meet their goals, but when they keep over 60%, plus you have marketing expenses, etc, it means you work for next to nothing.
Advice to Management
Do not go after reps who choose to leave because they have worked to build a business, and if they need more money by going independent, you should not be able to hold that against them. They have this growth plan that means putting a new rep in every half mile in major cities. You farm that area for years, spending your own hard-earned money to advertise, and then they give it away to another new rep - and you are a bad person if you point this out.
