    Great opportunity to make money, but may take some time

    Pros

    Mainly for those with an entrepreneurial spirit. Commission only, but there is viable opportunity to make money if you're willing to put in the time to play the numbers game
    doing cold calling and knocking doors.

    Cons

    I work at a NYC area office. The office structure is rather odd for such a large corporation. It's a boutique office type of environment.  Each location is basically an Aflac franchise. Overhead expenses are paid for by the regional manager and his partner/s.  These partners operate autonomously even though they represent the same company. This results into a lack of communication as members from one team do not know any of the managers or agents from other teams. Further overhead is allocated among district managers and top producers who rent out one of their cubicles or office spaces.   Minor expenses such as cups and coffee are regulated and people who wish to help themselves to such luxury have to pitch in or bring their own.  This is rather tacky IMO. It gives a penny pinching impression in this multi billion dollar corporation.  When I found out that we were free to make copies and send out faxes at no cost I took a sigh of relief.    

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People promoted to management should look, as well as act professionally. One should not have to wonder how they ever made to management.

    Pros

    Great company training, very supportive management.

    Cons

    Contractor and commission only, rewards are added to your commission so that you pay taxes on awards.
