I am not an employee or client, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night so here are my thought...


1 - John Hancock is an insurance company first. If you want to sell life and long term care insurance along with investment products, you may have found a good place. 


2 - I would imagine, and this is just speculation, that you will probably be pushed to sell THEIR investment products, although I know for a fact (interviewed with them) that you can offer other products besides JH products.


3 - It is a well known company with pretty good products (have been told their long-term care insurace is seconds to none), so that never hurts.


4 - I have had some money in a few of JHs mutual funds for quite a few years and they have performed fantastically.

thanks wlooney


I have only heard good things about John Hancock, but I never got the chance to speak with someone who is directly involved with them.

I was offered a job in one of there offices, they have good products. I was just not impressed with the manager I delt with. He talked about money the whole time and what his office is producing per advisor. It just turned me off. He did not care about my prospects, marketing ideas, ect. I was only in my 2nd year as well, so I would have been a liabality. He must have just needed a recruitment goal. They do have good products and I have sold some of there LTC. Each office is different I am sure. They always are.

When the same mistake happens more than once it is not a typo--therefore it is fair game to comment on because spell check won't catch it.


There are three words that sound alike but are spelled differently:


There is used to describe a location.  My car is over there, parked by the fire hydrant.


Their is the possessive.  The city put their fire hydrant next to my car after I parked it there.


They're is a contraction of the words "They are."  The city put their fire hydrant there, next to my car, after I parked it there because they're trying to get a reason to tow my car.


It saddens me to think that somebody who doesn't know how to spell can graduate from high school, much less college and/or actually go to work in this industry.


As long as functional illiterates can be hired being a financial planner will never be considered anything but a job.  Professions have standards.

Go teach highschool if you feel that passionate about grammar. I did not know I was being judged on the content of my grammar vs. my opinion of a firm.


Your a big boy, you can have your pride with your great spelling/grammar. Actually I am in awe, could i please invest with you? oh wait you can spell, but that's right you don't know a thing about asset allocation. Is that what clients say?

Get a book and read up on "Your" and "You're" in addition to they're, there, and their.


Also, don't forget sight, site, cite.


How long do you think you'll last as a dumb ass among the well educated types who are your competition?

Why aren't we allowed to report posters for someone who runs this board? That's pretty much the norm on all other boards I've seen. Sure helps keep the trash out.
