Pros

Excellent Training program, really teach you their way and good prospecting
Flexible Schedule as long as you are putting in the work, you get out what you put in

Keep adapting and exposing reps to all aspects of the business

    Pros

    "Unlimited Earning Potential" and "Make your own hours." They make you feel welcome and really try to make it seem like an amazing opportunity.

    Cons

    You end up having to pay rent and utilities for your office space. The "training program" is a complete sham, they will only hire you if you have a solid client list already in place to bring to the company.

    Unlimited income potential

    Proprietary products
    Family like work culture
    People always willing to help

    Financial rep position not suited for everyone, this is easily the biggest con. It takes the right person who can live with the good and bad days.
    Can be a lot of work to start
    Not something that is easy to relocate into without a network
    Not all network offices are as supportive
