    Pros

    If you are new to insurance you'll learn more in 1 year then most brokers learn in 4 years

    Cons

    If you're not smart, articulate, hard-working, don't know how do the corporate ass kiss and aren't good at problem solving, this won't be a good experience for you. Your happiness will depend upon the division you're in, some divisions are wonderful, some are hell holes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More "supportive" one on one mentoring after the first year. Let new AE's in field offices know which resources to call in NY when they're stuck. Continue breaking down the silo culture of divisions. Work on the mid level managers in the divisions and the cities where you know the morale stinks.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Crystal and Company.

    Interview Details

    The manager will tell you anything to get you to take the job. Once hired you are the best thing to ever happen to the company. That is until the next person comes alone that the account executives like more then you.
