Backstabbing fools
Pilot Plant Operator (Former Employee), St Joseph, MOMay 23, 2014
Cons: working for this place is a xon
They dont care about employees one bit.No communication and the upper management think they know it all and honestly some of the least experienced management in the field.

Opportunity for Growth and Advancement through Turn Key Training
Dvision Manager (Current Employee), Irvine, CaJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: career advancement, training, free trips, employee with benefits, no cold calling
Cons: exclusive industry - not everyone is eligible for employment
Both the initial and ongoing training at ICM will provide you with the tools you need to build a career in financial services. The advisors and managers focus on building long term relationships with clients and doing what's in the client's best interest. While I enjoy working with numbers and have an analytical mindset, I am equally passionate about – more... working with and helping people. This industry has allowed me to combine these skills and apply them to my daily functions, making it both personally fulfilling and financially rewarding.

Hardest Part of the Job: ICM provides proven training and systems for success but the employee must implement these tools in order to excel. There is structure, but also flexibility in your schedule, so if you aren't disciplined and organized you may not focus your activity on the areas that lead to productivity and results.

Most Enjoyable Part of the Job: The compensation and benefits package rewards hard working individuals through compensation bonuses, company trips, and advancements through promotions. I was promoted to Senior Management a year and a half after joining the firm as an entry level hire. If you have the ambition, dedication and commitment to implementation, the growth potential is unlimited. ICM only promotes from within! – less

Great Incentives, Work/Life Balance, and Opportunities for Advancement
District Manager (Current Employee), Irvine, CAJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: early promotions, access to upper management, great training program for those new to the business, free food sometimes
Cons: it can get a little chilly in the office
Incentives:
I love that there are so many cash bonuses for just doing what you're supposed to be doing. The best bonus is the all-expense paid international trips. I went to Cancun last year for free and we went snorkeling in Cozumel and golfing another day. I'm also going to the Bahamas later this year, all-expense paid.

Work/Life Balance:
It's a – more... flexible schedule which is great so I can go to my doctors appointments or take care of random emergencies without having to take time off. Having a flexible schedule can also be the hardest part of the job but if you have a strong work ethic and good time management skills that shouldn't be a problem.

Opportunities for Advancement:
Management recognizes hard working individuals and rewards them with promotions earlier than outlined in their management training program guidelines. I personally got promoted to Supervisor in 4 months and District Manager in 11 months. – less

ICM is a great company to work for. They will help train you to pass your Series 6, 63 and Life Agent exams. Great company for entrepreneur minded people. No cold calling, and amazing flexibility to help handle your personal life and your job.

The main issue I had was about compensation it was originally supposed to be a small salary and comission just ended up being commission,

Place is a chop shop. Tough to build momentum unless you have some whales in your pocket.
