No opinion of CEO

Pros

Much better professional development than is available at other financial-services companies. Principal spends a lot of time marketing new reps.

Cons

It's a pure sales job, no way around that. You're given about six months to find your stride, otherwise you're out.

Advice to Management

Upper management was in a state of flux. Regional managers are hands on and supportive, and want their recruits succeed.
