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.

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

    Pros

    The only con is that you have the freedom to choose your schedule and set it up.

    Cons

    They really just want to get new people in and get all of their family and friends as clients. I stayed for about a year and half hit all of my goals and still only made about 30k over almost 2 years. No benefits at all 100% commission.
