    The company philosophy is to support the big agents and weed out smaller agents.

    Pros

    Opportunity to be self-employeed
    Agency ownership
    Gain knowledge of insurance industry through hands on experience

    Cons

    The company labels agents as contractors but treats them like employees without the benefits or salary. For example, Allstate sets your office hours and decides when you can close your agency, they require you to attend their meetings at your expense, and attend their trainings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Design a product for the rural market or watch it slowly disappear. Treat your agents as your most important resource. Agent moral is very low because agents feel they are irrelevant to the company.
