    Pros

    Large budget to use on many,many projects. Lots of assets at your disposal. Pay is good. Bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization a never address the root of a problem. MMWay is over burdening teams with work that does not benefit out customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You ask for input from FLAs, then do not listen.

    Pros

    Great training program. Good experienced Advisors willing to work with you and help you to get your business started. Competitive products.

    Cons

    Being 100% commission is daunting but ultimately they believe that it will motivate you to earn and learn faster. It also creates extra pressure of not making money for awhile possibly .
