    Pros

    The best people I have had the pleasure to work with. Very team oriented

    Cons

    They tend to outsource maintenance of legacy system maintenance - can prove hard to find real SMEs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at outsourcing otherwise keeping bringing in the best people as you do!

    Pros

    Location was conveniently close to Galleria.

    Cons

    Benefits sucks. Health insurance was expensive. Company does not help you with leads. You are on your own. Not much culture here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help newbies get started by giving them a little hand.

    I have been working at AGLA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people that I worked with and getting to meet new people through the process of informing individuals about insurance but I don't like a commission only job.

    Cons

    With the compensation being commission based its hard to structure an efficient budget when you don't know how much your check will be from week to week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a base salary figured into the commission part to help agents stay afloat.

    Pros

    Not bound to an office.

    Cons

    Being micro-managed and being pushed to sell flavor of the week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote because someone can sell ice to a eskimo, most likely he told them it was whale blubber.

    Pros

    Great Learning Experience. Products offer are one of the best in the market. Fellow agents are helpful and nice.

    Cons

    100% commission, No support from management, pretty much a do it yourself type of company. If you have an established book of business then its a good place for you but if you seek a company to provide you leads or help you get clients, i wouldn't recommend this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to help the little people, rather then pushing them to the side.

    I worked at AGLA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Our office was very friendly and worked well together. Company had very good insurance products for individuals and for company owners.

    Cons

    As in most sales companies there is always the pressure of starting the new month over again at -0- and working the meet monthly goals. Requirements to qualify for annual convention continued to rise faster than ability to reach that level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give up too quickly on new sales force hires.
