Pros

Make your own hours, weekends and holidays are yours. It's all down hill from there as it's a boiler room

Cons

Low commssions, leads are free, yeah right. 90% turnover in a year.........I think that says it all. Aviod at all coasts.

Advice to Management

Resign and go work as the manager of a mcDonalds. And stop splitting commissions from day one with new hires, i felt like i was stealing.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    1. If you are established and been there for a while you have the possibility to make good money.
    2. They have wonderful products that really help people.

    Cons

    1. You need to have at least 3 or 4 months worth of money to live off of while you are getting started.
    2. Be prepared to work 70 hours a week for your first month and not make a dime.
    3. They take the first $100 and office fees from your first commission payment if you are lucky to get one.
    4. Most of the employees are cut throat.

    Advice to Management

    Most agents aren't trying to get rich. They just want to make a living. Had I at least gained $250 a week, that would have been enough to carry me over the hump until I actually started making money from commissions. It is really hard to phone power and make good appointments when you really don't care because you are so worried about your bills and how they will get paid.

    Pros

    Work with the senior sect.
    very positive towards established agents.

    Cons

    Leads are hard to work.
    pay is not what it is made out to be, I've been waiting for my commission already past payday.

    Advice to Management

    You should do what you say you're going to do. Follow through to insure that agents are getting the training they need to succeed.
