Former Employee - Business Development Manager says"Changes are very slow moving and it' a big hurdle to move up in the bank if you didn't work in a bank branch at some point in your career."
Investment Advisor Representative (Former Employee) says"This job is not as it seems- recent college grads do your research! Why are there no long term advisors there? Do not let the beautiful suits fool you. You do not work for VOYA corporate. You are a 1099 contractor who works for a group of people that brand as VOYA through an OSJ structure, WestStar. They will make it seem like you work for a big company. You are simply a contractor… you are provided no benefits. You must pay for everything yourself. Including but not limited to: paying for marketing, leads, computers, licensing, you name it. You are a 1099 financial services sales rep. Additionally, the splits/commissions that they provide you for the value that you receive is way below the industry average. If you are a good sales rep, you could make way more at another company. Again do not let them fool you saying they pay well. If you have been in the space for a long time, you will realize this right away. However, they target recent college grads who do not understand the industry.Advice - interview at ten other companies in the space. Big firms and small boutique offices. It will open your eyes.Professional AttireEverything said above"
Advisor (Former Employee) says"Some items that are lacking include good management, lack of support for clients, and a big change in the culture which will probably result in a big exodus of previously very loyal employees."
Investment Advisor Representative (Former Employee) says"The job is put out as being a financial advisor but you are really just a financial salesman. There are a couple of core products that you sell which give you extra bonuses so its pointless if you don't. The goal is to get as much commission as possible out of each client so the actual decision making process is typically easy. You get as many people with money through the door while "management" pitches them on the sale and thats about it. Don't expect legitimate training or stability at the company, management preaches they are doing great work but its just to keep morale upFlexible schedule, energized officeCommission based, bad training, inexperienced managers"
Investment Advisor Representative (Former Employee) says"Culturally good company to work at. High startup costs and sponsorship for events. Commission only based. Enjoyable to meet lots of people, and then follow up with calls.Good cultureExpensive and slow to start"
Office Manager (Former Employee) says"It was a nice job but when you make changes and bring people in you have to give then time to adjust. When you already have a lot to do and you trying to learn new things and fit them into your duties management has to understand. I signed up to be a Office Manager not a life insurance seller.Pay was goodTo much back stabbing"
Brokerage Operations- Senior Operations Associate (Current Employee) says"Too much work for the workforce that they have in place. Off site manager that you report to so you do not have a daily interaction with your direct supervision. Flexible work from home option.flexible work from home optiontoo much volume of work for the staff that is in place"
Financial Advisor's Resource (Former Employee) says"If you can manage to avoid working for a call center your golden. Call center work isn't worth the money. They have handle times of 7 minutes or less means taking more than 50 calls everyday. Other departments aren't as baddecent hoursscheduled breaks"
Registered Representative (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed working with individuals to help them plan for and ultimately receive retirement income from retirement savings. The culture was, for the most part, positive. The opportunity for learning about various retirement vehicles and products was good, if the employee was willing to do the leg work. There were no preset appointments or leads. The management promised things that never came to fruition and played favorites with certain employees or groups of employees.helping peoplemanagement"
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) says"I have been in the financial industry primarily doing administrative work. While I love my job and career move, I have no hours to stay afloat and no benefits. I enjoy the professionalism of the industry and have learned many valuable skills from my Manager. I would love Administrative work in financial services or another comparable industry."
