Love the Company and Products - Hated the job
Financial Professional Associate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 9, 2017
As an agent, you work on 100% commission. This is brutal. The only survivors are those with a hefty list of clients ready to meet with you before you start. Even then, most fall off and/or do not ever actually meet with you. There is a high pressure to make clients on a daily/weekly basis, because if you don't, you won't make money. There is also a push to express your commissions before clients are actually approved for products or services. So, this means as an agent you're most likely going to pay money back to the company.
They are flexible with work schedules, and life balance, but you also better be ready to spend most of your nights at miserable networking events in the hopes you find the hail mary in the end zone. Very few agents here make it past 2 years and even fewer make it to 4yrs.
I lost a lot of money working for them. You would think working at a place as prestigious as this would actually make me money, but that wasn't the case for me or several other agents I saw come and go.
work/life balance, fun atmosphere, managerial support (sometimes), flexibility, potential to make a lot in revenue
potential to never make money, longer hours than expected, learn as you go (often by making mistakes), lack of certainty
