    Pros

    Earning potential is great. Management is wonderful and very supportive. Lots of great training from people who really know what they are talking about. People are very friendly and supportive. Its an unusual insurance company, they do the right things for the right reasons. Opportunities for promotion are aplenty.

    Cons

    Takes a little time to get your business going. But if you can't invest about 3 months or if you're not willing to put in 100%, it may not be the career choice for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you're doing and how you're doing it.

    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.

    Pros

    Company support and product brochures are free. You determine your own schedule. 100% Commission sales job. Working with policyholders to handle claims is rewarding.

    Cons

    100% Sales job. Insurance is easy to sell if you can get past the "gatekeeper".
