    I worked at Aflac (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good sales training, good tools to start and get to know the product and market, good mentors in the process. The growth in the company depends on your own work and capacity.

    Cons

    Need good amount of capital to start because you will start getting return of your investment after the first semester. I will recommend it only if the person has the drive and resilience to manage a business.

    Great career for flexibility and unlimited income. Wonderful company, has rightfully won many awards for best company to work for.

    Difficult to start a career if you don't already have some support as far as a vehicle, some nice clothes, and a couple of months of income to have while building a statement.

    Pros
