    I have been working at Aflac full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The top management provides solid ethical leadership. The company does the right thing. Wonderful name brand recognition. They pay claims quickly making it a great company to represent. They pay associates well. Advanced commissions, stock and renewals make a great compensation package.

    Cons

    Too many new associates don't stay and so it's a revolving door. This gives Aflac a bad reputation with brokers and businesses. About 1 in 20 make it long term. 100% commission is not for everyone. The first two years are tough as a new field agent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more focus on veteran agents. Be more selective on bringing on new agents. Provide incentives to field managers for veteran production instead of new agents.
