I worked at First Investors Corporation as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The pros of this job are that you can be as ambitious as you want and work your butt off and most likely see great success. There are some minor rewards for hard work such as an annual company trip if you qualify, some expenses are paid.

Cons

if you have a good mentor there aren't many cons. If you're mentor isn't into it or quits the company while you are studying for the exams or just get going, that's going to be tough.

Advice to Management

None, I think management is doing a good job.

    I have been working at First Investors Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Set your own schedule (of course you still need to work but you can decide when)
    -The relationships you get to build with your clients are so rewarding
    -Great upward opportunity with a growing company which also means income is unlimited too
    -You can complete control over you career
    -You have license to be creative with your practice and take on any new initiatives you want
    -Exposure to new ideas and support from people all across the company and at all levels

    Cons

    -It does take hard work; you have to take ownership of your career.
    -It takes a lot of commitment especially in the beginning so the flexibility in schedule can be distracting to some.

    Advice to Management

    I think they do a great job of balancing supervision and independence. A lot of times it's really up to the employee to make sure they are working hard which is how it should be!

    I worked at First Investors Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent mentoring from managers to make sure you are being the best possible advisor you can be, Potential for high growth in business. Very good training and get licenses paid for by company.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not the best. Expect to put in 50 hours a week with low pay. Reason for this is because they are paying for your licenses and when you start to make full commissions the expectation of doubling and tippling base salary is high.
