Negative Outlook

I worked at North Star Resource Group full-time

Pros

The day I left that place.

Cons

Ponzi scheme structure. You bring two friends in, they each bring in two friends, etc. I feel horrible for their clients. Always getting slammed into highly commissionable life insurance products that don't make sense for their situation.

Advice to Management

Look in the mirror and slap yourself.

    Pros

    Great training/mentorship program for financial advisors
    Fun people with "work hard to play harder" mentality
    Opportunity to travel
    They "recycle" employees to an extent
    Tons of perks and incentives for advisors
    Great benefits package

    Cons

    Advisor positions are commission based and your licensing comes out of pocket so don't expect to make a penny the first few months
    Traveling, supplies, and hiring assistants also come out of pocket if you are an advisor
    Lack of communication between offices
    Lack of training and advancement opportunities for employees who are not advisors

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job of communicating with the employees and giving credit where it's due.

    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.
