    colleagues are great to work with

    a small percentage of independent registered reps are out of control by threatening staff for doing their job according to policy. Magagment knows about the bad reps but ignore. Back office staff are expendable

    Pros

    Pay was decent, and decent office.

    Cons

    This company was a nightmare, the people are cold and self-absorbed. It's very much a good ole boy network. Honestly I think it's the nature of the business but they just feel like an overly conservative, super fake.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldnt care about my advice as long as they make money.

    Back office support on the day to day activity is good. The staff is supportive and responsive and goes out of their way to assist.

    Learned ALOT, gave me an greater understanding of things to come in my future.

    I had a very demanding supervisor which is fine with me normally but the language barrier (yes, I know...) became very difficult for me to gap.

    Advice to Management

    None, keep it up!

    I worked at NEXT Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to make as much money as possible and the sky was the limit. I met with wonderful clients and helped them better their finances each day.

    Cons

    Even though customers can be difficult, I surpassed any problems by being able to help EVERY client. I never turned anyone away except for those with ridiculously low credit scores.

    Advice to Management

    hire more originators so that the CEO will be more successful
