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

Pros

Great study material to get you educated on investments and life insurance vehicles. The licenses you earn here are transferable to other financial service companies.

Cons

Management only looks out for themselves. They throw you to the wolves and only go to see the clients YOU bring in to the company if they know they will get a larger commission off of YOUR sale.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the newbies. They are putting money into your pocket for a good chunk of time before they move up the ranks. Don't pick and choose which appointments you go to - know the value in every client and be aware that every appointment is important to a new rep.

    I have been working at Foresters Financial as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule once established. Good products. Fun environment. Good trips if you qualify for them.

    Cons

    No benefits because you're an independent contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Careful not to try and put too much demand on your reps when they're on independent contractors and you're providing no benefits to back them up.

    I have been working at Foresters Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent environment to work in.
    Get to meet several new people out there that need financial questions and concerns answered.

    Cons

    Lack of support once testing for licenses is done.
    May need a deep pocket to get the ball rolling at first.
