    Avantages

    You are treated like family at the beginning to bring in your friends and family as clients.

    Inconvénients

    Advisors are independent contractors so sexual harassment, hostile work, harassment etc are not enforceable for advisors under EEOC rules. They "void your contract" if you report the people to HR, Compliance, and Legal as their training states to do. Female advisors are deemed useless if they want to start a family or spend time with kids . All new advisors need to work 50 to 60 hours a week for the first three years...

    Conseils à la direction

    Quit making advisors take anti harassment training, hostile work training, etc when you will terminate anyone who files a complaint. You then report to EEOC that the complaints were made by an "independent contractor" who is NOT an employee.

    First Command appreciates the comments made but must respectfully reject the allegations in this posting. It is true that First Command Advisors are independent contractors, as we promote an entrepreneurial spirit encouraging Advisors to achieve such goals they choose to set. And ...

      Avantages

      Training Program is excellent. They treat you very well, and they genuinely want you to succeed, but they won't lower the standards for anyone. Rote memorization is absolutely key for the first part of the training process. The company is going through a lot of positive changes.

      Inconvénients

      Every office (there are a lot, all over the world) is every different. The leadership across offices can be inconsistent. The company's main focus is active duty military. It's really hard to create clients outside of that market.

      Conseils à la direction

      Ensure District Advisors actually interface with all the Fast Start Advisors at least weekly. Sometimes it's hard to know what questions to ask when you're first beginning, and having someone help you figure that out would be nice.

      - There is a BAD "Frat-Boy" mentality and favoritism among the District Advisors, which can make for an unhealthy work environment. - The District Advisor (DA) can make or break your career. If you end up having any type of personality conflict with them, they can disengage from your business which can make it very hard to succeed. - The pay & compensation structure while you are a W-2 employee (a 9 month observation...

      Conseils à la direction

      This was the first job I left that I was not offered an exit interview. I experienced some highly questionable practices that border lined on discrimination from the District Advisor and had no opportunity to address them with the company, almost as if they would rather turn a blind eye to what is happening in the field, as long as there is revenue. Holding exit interviews with outgoing employees could provide insight...
