    Great place to intern if your looking for Financial Services experience

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsGiven that you have a good agent to work under the training is valuable. Hours are typical. usually co workers are competent and will help you understand and train, you can be certified to sell P&C and Life health insurance very quickly if you focus and study.

    ConsAt times it can be weird because you are competing with coworkers for customers( pay is usually based on comission)

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake more of an effort to diversify your market in different subgroups. Offer more sales training to new interns and employees.

    Tons of fun, not a full-time position

    College Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsInternship was a lot of fun and a great introduction to the company.

    ConsThe internship does not correlate to a full-time position with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo much focus on rigid hierarchy (should work claims/underwriting to get to agent, should be agent to get to AFO, should be at AFO before working in higher management)

    Fun internship!

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat opportunities to display strengths. Real work experience. Flexible hours--you can choose your own hours and even have friday afternoons off to explore the city.

    ConsAway from city life. A lot of responsibility is given you to. Intern activities are not as flashy as I've seen in other companies.
