    Pros

    - Real-life opportunities to learn.
    - Supervision from senior representatives that facilitate the entrance of new reps.
    - You make your own destiny, you decide when to work and how to work, if you work hard, your work will pay off.

    Cons

    - Just by being an intern, I can only say that it must difficult to start on this business.
    - It takes a lot of courage from the employees to get to people and tell them what you do, because you do not have any clients when you start so you have to do a lot of cold calling.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership of the senior reps and the supervisor of the interns are really good. First Investors try to make the interns to understand how the real business work, not only the book material.
