Pros

You can make your schedule flexible, but you need to work over 40 hours to make this job work for you. Expect to put in 60-70 hours your first year. The families love your help; it is very reqarding.

Cons

I don't think a lot of new advisors coming on board quite get the resources that are available to families so developing trust is key. You have to be the expert. Many people are hired from a sales background with little to no senior background work so they tend to be money and numbers driven which is not what this field is about. The sales process is extremely slow which is to be expected in this kind of sales.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage is great! They listen to what we say and try to take what we say and implement it. I think they do a great job.

    Pros

    The best thing about A Place for Mom is the mission of the organization and flexibility. What we do in helping families is unique and a value add.

    Cons

    Insular leadership. Not the right people are in the room making the right decisions. Mini expedia. The new CEO only speaks about leads and marketing - not the families we should help.Sean has hired a band of brothers who have no experience in the industry (which is ok) but they have not taken the time to learn from the people around them.
    Turnover is crazy with 50-80% turnover. Intentions are overall good but execution of those decisions is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sean - listen to your team! The complete team both in corporate and in the field not just the people that you hired from Expedia. You have good ideas but your ego prevents you from asking others opinion or engaging your team. Dont talk AT people - ask questions and LISTEN!!
