    Pros

    Great company. Great culture. Anyone who's passionate about building their own practice, valuing flexibility and looking for uncapped income potential should go for it.

    Pros

    Very practical experience in the business world. Become comfortable phoning and conducting meetings. Test drive a career in the financial services industry. Allowed to set your own schedule.

    Cons

    Expected to try to sell to friends and family. Need to have tough skin to handle rejection. Compensation is mainly commission which is tough for college students.
