Pros

-You were able to create your own schedule and they were very flexible with accomodating different training sessions.

Cons

-The fact they represent themselves as financial advisors is scary. They have no knowledge other than how to talk people up and make them feel like they know what they are talking about.
-They give no base pay to start out and the training they provide is inadequate.
-Their business model is to bring in as many people as possible, have them call all their friends and family, and whoever survives they enjoy the roll down from their comissions and who doesn't is not their problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop tricking innocent people into believing you know what you're talking about. Gain some type of knowledge of what your selling and stop trying to throw the product with the biggest commission at every client no matter their present situation.

    Pros

    Very generous with their pay. Recognition is awesome. My father has worked here for 40 years and will tell you the same thing. One of the best companies in the world in my opinion.

    Cons

    Lots of hours but worth it. Nothing else much negative to say...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the best people to work with in the industry. I have great leadership and myself am going through the pathway to leadership....very rewarding

    It is a very personally rewarding job because you are helping others achieve their goals financially.

    Pros

    You get to start business relationships with new people and usually develop a close friendship with them after a little while. Furthermore, if you work harder than others you will literally get paid for it because there is absolutely no salary cap on how much money you can make

    Cons

    You have to deal with people in regard to their personal finances which can be a sensitive topic sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We must make sure all new agents have an intimate understanding with our products before letting them go out on their own.
