Pros

Unlimited comission
Working with very intelligent people

Cons

Very expensive to finance
You get advances, so if you quit you have to pay it all back. You're basically trapped.
You are told what needs to be done, but very little about how.
Training program needs work.
They say you will have a flexible schedule, but you are expected to be "on" 24/7

Advice to Management

Actually train during the training program instead of just expect people to figure it out. And don't just use them to do all your marketing, and then force them out.

    Pros

    For advisors, your income potential is only limited by your ability to sell product to individual consumers in your network. The people are generally quite nice and welcoming.

    Cons

    Pretty low pay for support staff. Also, lacked the necessary middle management required to effectively train support staff employees. This can be quite difficult for a recent college graduate.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to develop internally with an emphasis on sales processes for new advisors and better training for support staff. This should allow for their greater success, and yours.
