    J'ai travaillé chez First Command Financial Services à temps partiel plus d'un an

    Avantages

    One of the pros was flexible schedules. Most positions don't require you to be there 24/7 and helps create a good balance of life and work.

    Inconvénients

    No consistency throughout the company. Each office kind of makes up their own rules and procedures making it #1 hard to learn processes and procedures #2 creates a disconnect from office to office.

    Conseils à la direction

    Encourage advisors in a way that doesn't drive them to largely focus on the numbers. It's a great service provided, but consistently felt like we were fitting products to our clients rather than creating relationships that really helped them set up a long term financial lifestyle.

    Avantages

    You have the ability to work with deserving clients. Great for gaining experience.

    Inconvénients

    To start with First command holds its self out to pay "you" the advisor the most commission possible. Now that I have worked at another firm and have several friends at other top firms in the industry I have discovered that their pay out multiples are the same in some cases and lower in most cases. The kicker to this is that on top of paying you a lower or average rate for the work you do virtually all other firms cover...

    Avantages

    Your core clients are military which are great people to serve. Their training program is thorough and they teach you a lot about selling insurance. They also have great training on the Federal Employee market.

    Inconvénients

    They are crooks when it comes to paying you. They will lie about how much commissions are paid to them from the companies and then give you a portion of that money. You are expected to run your business by paying for help, rent, your own taxes for about 33% of the commissions paid out plus any bonuses. You also have to pay a monthly fee to First Command for their home office support. After you leave them, they will hold...

    Conseils à la direction

    You keep enough of the money advisors bring into this company. The trails don't stop coming into First Command after a year yet they stop to advisor so you shouldn't be coming after advisors for charge backs after a year.

    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.
