Pros

Huge potential to build your own business and make a lot of money
Helping others in and outside your community build financial security
Leadership roles
Independence
Great opportunity
Great training

Cons

Hard to get started. Very difficult to get through 6 months, much less 4 years. After 5 years you are golden.
Some reps are better than others. Some Advisors business is hurting and pay their employees poorly (assistant roles), also they create a very negative atmosphere.
Can be high stress.
It is a sales position, do not let the financial part fool you. You are a sales rep.

    Pros

    Free lunch, great medical benefits, wonderful work environment, and great people to work with. This company provides everything you need to become successful as far as training, tuition reimbursement, and advancement opportunities. If you are willing to work and pursue your career, this is a great place to do it.

    Cons

    It is a very conservative environment. Hierarchical. It matters who you know, who you are seen with, how much you network, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue pursuing diversity and inclusion. The program will take a while to take hold because the company is very much like an old man set in his ways; however, when the openmindedness of receiving insight from those who have different opinions, life experiences, and perspectives - it will sound like glass walls are shattering because growth is going to take place.
