    Pros

    Interesting work. Qualified workforce. Facility very nice. Very responsive workforce

    Cons

    Punative management. Terminate consultants quickly with no notice. If consultant stay away from there. Processes one area enforces is opposite to what other organizatiobs allow creating failure situations.

    Pros

    Great Training Program
    Solid Company
    Great Values and Ethics
    Alot of products and services to offer the clients
    No Cap on earning potential
    GA and Assistant GA are Fabulous

    Cons

    No very well known here in CA. Very well known on the East Coast; name recognition and more advertising is needed. Would have been better if a new person to the business join a year after they are in the business not NEW....too hard to get traction and the programs don't give you enough time to get your book off the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they run a great company

    Pros

    they pay bonuses to everyone, regardless of performance

    Cons

    management is lacking leadership and it's definitely an ol' boys network. Systems are antiquated. Many employees have been there their entire careers. They are very against change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and minds. Invest in systems that help your employees work smarter, not harder.
