      Good pay for no education, but a draining job

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good work/life balance, good pay, benefits are unbeatable and cheap. They also pay you for training, which is incredible because they invest in your growth within the company.Lastly, they give you a lot of PTO, which is front-loaded. My manager (brown) was great, and I never heard any other negative things about other managers.

      Cons

      The job gets draining. Additionally, if you start getting trained on variable annuities (their biggest business line) you have to cram about 350 pages of material in 3-4 weeks and then take a state exam that is not easy (this made me quit, I don't learn that quickly).

      Lost their potential

      Pros

      Vacation time is better than most, but none of your PTO belongs to you so if they terminate your employment they will take any remaining PTO and leave you with nothing.

      Cons

      No job security. You’ll always be just a number to them. They used to be a great company that is slowly selling itself off because it is tanking. They fired the CEO after one year and informed employees via email on a Thursday afternoon after work hours. If you want to enjoy your work/life balance then I suggest looking elsewhere for employment.

      Makes it look like a great place to work

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Makes it look like a great place to work. They entice you with all these things like career development and all these special courses you can take on your own time and they really try to sell it to you as this great job with an amazing future that if you stick with them you’ll eventually find your place

      Cons

      They make it seem like you will move up to full-time and a living wage within 6 to 12 months when in reality it’s 3 to 5 years and I can’t wait that long to be making a living wage

      Great pay and benefits. You get to work with some of the best in the industry.
