Pros

Excellent training & examples of how to be successful.

Cons

No base salary other than signing bonus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Big Brother program is a great idea but there needs to be a selection process between the new rep & the Big Brothers to connect with similar personalities.

    Pros

    Beautiful office, friendly atmosphere, and great training program.

    Cons

    It is sink or swim. You are given the training and you have a development specialist, but if you are not doing well, you are not making any money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more stipends for people just starting out or possibly a draw.

    Pros

    Unlimited income potential
    Great training, can break down the steps to succeed
    Proprietary products
    Family like work culture
    People always willing to help
    Huge amount of marketing resources
    Can use products outside of the Nmfn family

    Cons

    Financial rep position not suited for everyone, this is easily the biggest con. It takes the right person who can live with the good and bad days.
    Can be a lot of work to start
    Not something that is easy to relocate into without a network
    Not all network offices are as supportive
