    Pros

    great support, they really care about their clients and advisors, take a holistic approach towards financial planning, does not attempt to make you push products as they always make sure whatever they are recommending is in the best interest of the client, pays for designations and licenses, great management support team, really makes you grow as a person, sr. reps are always willing to go on meeting with less experienced reps to help them aid clients

    Cons

    if you don't work extremely hard you will fail out of this business, you cannot hope to just "float", if you're looking for just another desk job where you receive your paycheck each week regardless of what you did then this is definitely not the career for you

    Advice to Management

    keep doing a great job!

    Pros

    The high level producers are very encouraging and very willing to sit down and talk with you, the products are the best on the market, nice signing bonus, good software, great learning experience

    Cons

    No base salary, my trainer was pretty poor but that will depend on the office, only teach 1 system that isn't very realistic, unless you can keep generating new leads, will be tough to make it

    Advice to Management

    Get a process in place that doesn't just involve asking everyone you know for referrals
