    $80B company so greedy that they need your money, your gas, and inordinate amounts of your time to be successful.

    Pros

    Product is great. The supplemental insurance plans that they sell make a big difference in peoples lives.

    Cons

    Throw you to the wolves mentality. Too many agents and the market saturation factor is an impediment. Training is laughable. Absolutely no support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure your company's sales force.. No-1099. Pay your employees social security taxes. Provide your employees with a base salary until they develop a book of business. You have a 17% retention rate with your sales force!!!

    Pros

    Easy money........ IF you have contacts in benefits sales i.e. a solid brokerage or a CPA. Great company to get your career going in employee benefits.

    Do it if you own a payroll company, married to a CPA or just related to one.

    Cons

    It will end up costing you money. Servicing will become demanding. You will have to expand your products to include all programs under benefits i.e. health insurance, workers comp etc. At the end of the day, its a payroll company product.

    There is a bit of politics with the so called management. They don't understand how some agents have key contacts. They basically will use you to win your contacts in the short run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they know what they are doing. They basically have good sales people that will drop out, and they will keep the accounts and sell off to Districts etc.
