    I have been working at Old Mutual full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    very good support
    quick turn around
    minimal paperwork
    the support from the home office on the mainland was great!

    Cons

    beat the street
    pound the pavement
    find your own leads
    their was no real mentor close to me and the time difference proved to be a hindrance when scheduling

    Advice to Management

    small draw would be a good start for new producers to get offices started, free signage?
