Pros

You are compensated for your success. If you are ambitious, and like to be rewarded for your hard work, than this is an excellent opportunity for you. Exceptional training, one of the best.

Cons

Salery is commission based, so no success = no salery.

Advice to Management

Wonderful leadership. The directors invest a lot of time into their consultants, especially when you begin,

    Pros

    Ability to let you grow to know the financial market thoroughly. Understanding how to analysis the market and express it to clients/prospect in a language they will understand. That being said, you will become better at selling a financial plan to a prospect simply because you can't afford to miss a single deal and you will only try to improve each time

    Cons

    Since this is a self employed position, i don't recommend anyone who just started off doing this as their career. I would highly suggest anyone to start off at a bank first. Marketing cost, desk fee and other hidden cost is quite high. If you are coming off with a family to support, then you better think twice.

    Advice to Management

    Great management training. They will always teach you how to run a successful business. The upper management will always show support to help the consultant grow
