    Pros

    Unique product, Extensive training, Supportive team environment. AIG, the parent company,has generated several billion dollars of interest to pay back to tax-payers, by impressively buying back the majority of shares of stock the govt. bought in the bail-out in 2009. The company has a high level of integrity. AGLA has abundant cash reserves to cover all claims. All of it's policies include accelerated benefit riders that provide living benefits for critical, chronic and terminal illnesses.

    Cons

    CRM technology has been slow to be updated. Training sources need to be consolidated. Too much paper is utilized in daily transactions. Generating a consistent revenue stream has taken much longer than I anticipated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course you are on. Minimize paper transactions. Better synchronize the processing of application, underwriting and issue to reduce timeline.

    Pros

    Freedom to Set Your Own Hours.

    Cons

    They give you no leads. It's up to you to bring friends, family and/or acquaintences to quickly sell insurance policies to. You MIGHT get lucky and inherit a former salesperson's book of business, but most are riddled with shady sales, poor service and/or horrific problems that the former salesperson was pressured into by quotas.

    Their claim to fame is "innovative" insurance policies that really aren't at all innovative. Customers see right through the come-ons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The old insurance sales model no longer works.
