    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 .
