    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.
