Pros: the chance to help people with their finances in a meaningful way.
Cons: the management doesn't expect you to last so they don't do much to encourage you.
Basically, they exploit there financial reps. for contacts. Out of 15 - 20 new reps., I was the only one that lasted longer than a year before finally getting burned-out.
I loved the actually work I was doing. I tried to continue despite the way we were treated. Ultimately, I quit for my own mental well-being.
