I worked at Lear Capital (Less than a year)
The manager at the Irvine office was nice and helpful. Commission structure is great but the margins make it hard to sell. Salary is average and they hire anyone and fire them after a month or two. I suggest this job if you need a buffer between jobs for a few months.
Owner and co owners are not ethical and are selling an inferior product for more money. 401k to metal is a scam so selling can be mentally draining. They have health insurance but it's expensive. Bad office environment. Many employees in Irvine office were extremely prejudice against any minority. You have to watch Fox News all day and listen to coworkers whine about foreigners and Obama.
Advice to Management
Close Irvine office no reason for it. Be up front with clients. Stop trying to straddle the line ethically and try and make the company a business an employee can feel confident to work for going forward.
