    Pros

    Fantastic people. Great training program. Can be a fun environment

    Cons

    If you are young it is very hard to start out. You make money on bringing in wealth. You need a list of hundreds of prospects or you will be in trouble. Straight commission so if you are tight on money going into this, it may be stressful

    Advice to Management

    - create a base salary contract for new people. even $30k
