I worked at Aflac full-time (More than a year)

Pros

As with any place where you work as an Independent Agent you have freedom and endless income opportunity. This is a great product.

Cons

Recruiters(Regional Sales Managers & District Sales Managers) make big promises to get you in. All they really want is to meet their recruiting goals, and use you to get to all the people you know. This floods the market with agents meaning you are competing with way too many people. Almost every cold call attempt requires getting someone to forget the last Aflac agent they talked to, and give you a chance.

    I have been working at Aflac (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, Fortune 200 company to represent, excellent products to sell. My trainers and coordinators were excellent.

    Cons

    Difficult to make money consistently and quickly. Everybody is independent, so your experience is based on who recruits you.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet and re-structure the field force. Carpet bombing has damaged the reputation. Figure out a way to pay agents for service so that your current accounts don't fall off. Work harder at broker relationships.
