I enjoy working at Focal-Point as a Financial Advisory Consultant. The pay is great and the ability to work from home and minimal travel is fantastic. Great team members and interesting projects. However, there are down periods, sometimes weeks, between projects, especially in the summer months. Overall, a fantastic and diverse firm!
Can be fun, but new hire training needs improvement
Manager (Current Employee) – Florida – August 8, 2015
The company is a relatively young company. The benefits are great, but they tend to hire young, unexperienced employees and expect the more seasoned staff to train them during client assessments that are under very tight deadlines. The new hire training process needs a lot of improvement.
