Pros – Opportunity to be your own boss and make decisions on how you run your own agency. Unlimited earnings potential depending on how hard you work. There is a good management support in our area to help us succeed and do the right things. However, it is still on the agency owner to take action!
Cons – Have to make sales to earn an income...the first few years are up and down depending on the amount of sales you make. In economic downturns, it makes it tougher to achieve the goals you set for yourself, but they are possible! Change is inevitable, but I don't like the fact that they we sign a contract that allows them to change without talking to the owners about it.
Advice to Senior Management – Give the agencies more flexibility to advertise using the company name with our agency.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Your time is your time. Meaning dependent of your agent your can come and go as you please.
Cons – The pay sucks. You work very hard to make someone else rich.
