    Pros

    Lot's of training. The support, both online and from senior agents, is impressive. You are not just given some books to study and sent into the field; you go on appointments with your training agent, and they go with you until you are proficient on your own.

    Cons

    The nature of the industry means up and down commissions, at least until you have enough business for nice residuals. That's just the nature of the beast.

    Pros

    Tons of training and helpful people. Lots of incentives. Amazing financial compensation. Love my flexible work hours. I can work from home - or office. I was assigned 1 mentor - but have dozens. The online training information is outstanding. Tons of support & training information. FREE lead lists.

    Cons

    LOSERS BEWARE!!! If you can not handle a fast environment - this is not the job for you. If you are not able to communicate with company owners intelligently - this is not the job for you. If you think someone else is going to do this job for you - this is not the job for you. Aflac expects hard workers - and pays their employees equally high incomes. Too many people think this job is going to pay them $100,000 yearly for a walk in the park. Building your own book of business is difficult at first - but the final compensation is worth the initial struggle. Too many people can't make it though the initial struggle then quit because they don't have the personal self motivation.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee starts provide them with a list of what resources are available. THERE ARE TONS - but a list for new employees would be helpful.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Cons

    You have to keep yourself motivated - since you are now basically working for yourself & making your own hours. So it's up to YOU on how well YOU succeed.

    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".
