Negative Outlook

Pros

Work your own hours, build your business your way, good company branding

Cons

High turn around rate, 100% commission, clawbacks if policies are declined after months of underwriting, your friends and family often distance themselves from you in case you try to sell them something, many people leave the company owing them money from office rentals, clawbacks, and the outrageously expensive benefits package.

Advice to Management

STOP focussing on campaign incentives! If you focus on the advisors that you hired and helping them to grow in an honest, educated, and supported manner, they would stick around longer and perform better, making your job easier.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, strong mentorship and training program. healthy work environment, good benefits. Internal transfers and room to grow.

    Often repetetive work, not very challenging. Only so many ways to move up the corporate ladder. Often dealing with angry customers and sometimes your hands are tied to help.
