    I worked at Verastar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Colleagues are the best thing but that has nothing to do with the company.

    Cons

    They don’t care about progression, they will use it as an enticement tool to get you in the door but good luck actually trying to progress. It is the epitome of a dead end job, everyone goes to work miserable and cannot wait to leave. Seems to be one rule for management and another for “lowly advisors”. So ridiculously understaffed it’s hilarious, the amount of mental breakdowns that occur is positively shocking and the fact that only 1 in 4 staff actually stay on after the training just shows you how bad the turnover is. In a nutshell, if you like feeling completely expendable and want to do a monotonous job and not really get anything out of the job then this would be perfect for you. If you actually want a career then I would look elsewhere! Also do not believe the 5 star review, they are from newbies that haven’t actually been there long enough to be out of the honeymoon phase of having a new job yet...you’re welcome.
