      Pros

      I enjoy the very flexible work environment, I work from home most days helping bring on and take care of clients. You choose who you work with and how you work with them.

      Cons

      Benefits are dependent on sales goals, hard to get started in the career (worth it if you make it), your income is based on clients and sometimes that is hard in the beginning.

      Pros

      A company computer provided for advisor use. E-learning is excellent and the company was ahead of the curve for Covid as use of virtual appointments were already in use.

      Cons

      Even though they don't say it -- its all about the friends and family.

      Pros

      Great people in the company. Had a lot of fun getting to know some of the people and everyone is really nice. Office is state of the art, bordering on too much. Pay is actually really nice, campaigns are a great motivator

      Cons

      Especially if you work as an internal, your external matters. Had a really good friend in training, she got a great territory where she works with her external constantly, and is put in positions to grow. I ended up getting an external who doesn't come across as motivated or willing to help me grow. While others are doing sales, I'm just an errand boy and I don't even feel comfortable enough to ask my external for more help or for ideas. Company culture is completely gone after Covid. Sales desk experience is not even close to what it was. Advisors constantly call in pissed off either because service desk is in India or because someone didn't follow up when they were supposed to, and you just gotta take it. Work flat out feels robotic and unrewarding often.

      Pros

      Fully supported 4 year development and launch program to get licensed, develop a marketing plan, learn business development and sales skills, and establish a community-based financial services practice in a team learning environment.

      Cons

      You’re personally responsible for your outcomes - it’s not a ‘job’ - you are your own boss from day one and if you’re not used to determining your own goals and priorities, you will not be able to get by on minimum effort.
