    Pros

    Fantastic sales training you can utilize for the rest of your career

    Cons

    Commissioned environment is a great motivator for someone with enough time to dedicate to the profession. But the team helps keep you realistic with realistic performance reviews.

    Pros

    Stable company with lots of capital. Decent benefits on par with industry. Becoming more flexible with work schedules and supporting remote arrangements.

    Cons

    Still many "old fashioned" folks in management that are stuck in their ways and not very friendly or approachable.......but that's getting better as CEO attempts to modernize company.

    Pros

    Potential to make a lot of money.
    Culture is really kind and somewhat helpful.

    Cons

    No starting salary or starting pay.
    you have to pay for all of your licensing and training.
    No reimbursement for time spent training.
    There is no one to help you create you practice and build your clientele.

    Advice to Management

    Give some type of starting pay. Minimum wage for the first few months even.
