      Pros

      They take care of their employees! During the pandemic state shutdown and during the recent ice storm they took care of us to keep us whole while out of the field. Couldn’t have asked for a better company who values their employees. They invest in your success and want you to reach your full potential. Generous comp plan, they pay you what you are with... I’m finally making six figures!!! Great health & retirement benefits.

      Cons

      No paid time off, however they do give you points towards your monthly bonus to keep you on track.

      Pros

      -Working for a great cause (protecting the rights of small business owners) -Hands on training -Company culture? Without exaggeration, the best! I have been with NFIB going on 8 years. In that time, every person I have met across the organization has been delightful and willing to help in any way that they can. We also recognize and celebrate success while pulling together toward our common of protecting our members' rights to own, operate, and grow their businesses. -Great career development and growth opportunities -Excellent employee benefits

      Cons

      -Must be a self manager and driven. I know this section is for cons and this his isn't necessarily a con, but I don't really have any cons to list. With the idea that this is to hep others potentially find the great career that I have found I figure I will just provide a dose of reality. One of the greatest benefits of the career is the autonomy and work/life balance that it provides, at the same time not everyone is cut out for that autonomy. If you aren't good at holding yourself accountable for your results, it's not for you. Just like a small business owner, your income depends on your effort.
