Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at Foresters Financial full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Truly limitless income potential.
Opportunity for success for the right person.

Cons

Conflict of interest between selling propietary funds and outside company funds with more options and sometimes better performance.
Management totally pitches all the positive things that "could" happen by working for this company. These things are likely not to happen, at least within the first 3 years

Advice to Management

Finish program design before implementation. The current training program is still being ironed out, while trying to squeeze new trainees through an ambiguous pipeline.

    "First Investors"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    There are a lot of company events that help you to develop friendships with your coworkers.

    Cons

    There are very high expectations for your performance and limited assistance from management to help you meet those goals. The hours you are expected to work are extremely long and there is little payoff in the end. Most employees end up quitting within the first six months of working there because too much is expected of them and the only advice that the management team usually gives to you is to just keep trying.
