      I have been working at Heritage Education Funds full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Heritage is a great place to work. It's a small enough company that you have the opportunity to gain cross functional/departmental experience. A lot of the work is hands-on and so you have the opportunity to learn from the ground up. It is a great place for someone who wants to get involved and learn. The people are really supportive and great to work with.

      Cons

      A con and a pro, being a smaller company, people are called on to wear several hats at times. For some, this is great, and for others who prefer predictable tasks, this might not be desirable.

      Pros

      Plenty of social events for employees.

      Cons

      Management is not supportive of their employees and will only take care of themselves and not their subordinates. Its a "cut throat" atmosphere.

      Advice to Management

      Do not hire the relatives of current employees

      I worked at Heritage Education Funds part-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      its good door opener for financial advise

      Cons

      The upfront fee , which the company gives fancy names like membership fee or scholarship fee.The portfolio is fill of bonds and hardly any equity into it. I wonder why no certified financial planner sells Heritage product or in general group RESP. Most of group resp is sold to immigrants , who do not understand English very well. I feel guilty by selling group resp to my clients in past.

      Advice to Management

      You should revamp the Portfolio and hire educated professionals as sales person, instead of cab drivers or house wives. You should give a choice to client to have NO sales charges and now please do not tell me that you have Impression plan , which is not even 1 percent of sales and mostly agent sells group resp by not explaining upfront fees.
