"Good learning experience for job seekers out of college"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Office environment was helpful. You learn a lot about concept selling vs product selling.

Cons

100% commission so it is very hard when you are first starting out and don't have a big book of business.

Advice to Management

No need to micromanage contracted professionals.

    I have been working at Foresters Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I did start out of college and was taught everything with a huge amount of support and training. The training was good and now is beyond awesome. I was not even a finance major and now I earn multiples of six figures. More important, FIC truly helps the everyday people. First Investors started this year paying for the License fees and offering a salary with benefits. Great product offering from all the major companies as well as some real nice advantages for clients because FIC is owned by Foresters, a non-profit community giveback organization.

    Cons

    Requires very hard work first few years. None otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work listening to your people and making so many wonderful changes! It's like a new company, even better then it was two years ago.
