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
