I worked at American Family Insurance full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Support, Training, Great Work Environment, given a great deal of freedom. Offered Life insurance. Has a marketable Brand Name. Excellent marketing campaign. The State management was great to work with. Mentoring and Accountability was good.

Cons

Software to process application and run auto quotes outdated, Prices not very competitive. Limited products to offer in State of Oregon. Limited ability to offer commercial insurance. Very conservative quoting matrix. Needed more direction and guidance for marketing efforts. Had to turn away too many opportunities.

Advice to Management

Update your quoting & consolidate software. Keep your small promises and don't make big promises.

    I have been working at American Family Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the work schedule options. We have a standard work week of 37.5 hours, and can have one of three standard schedules. Either work 5 days a week with 7 hour, 40 minute days; or work slightly longer days but take an afternoon off every other week; or work 8 hour 30 minute days and take a day off every other week. Love those extra days off!

    Cons

    Not much vacation--start off with 2 weeks for the first 5 years.

    I worked at American Family Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent Claim Service. Agents are taught insurance, billing, underwriting skills and many other skills that are great for this fabulous career. Can make very good money as long as you play along. Get to meet some wonderful people of all kinds, this can change your life in many good ways. Get to take great trips with the company if you sell your ass off in Life Insurance.

    Cons

    Company smiles at your face and then stabs you in the back, so do not rust your ASM. EVER! Agents are made into puppets, they are treated bad if you do not sell Life Insurance and hit all of your impossible company goals. Company management are changing this company for the worse. There is no Family in American Family anymore. Agency Support is at its worse. Your stress level will make you sick. The trips you win are not free, you get 1099 on everything at the end of the year. Take the money and take your family somewhere else. Cheaper!

    Advice to Management

    Fire Yourself! You are all a disgrace for the way you let management treat agents. You tell us things are tight and we have to work harder and then you have the balls to take millions of dollars in bonuses. You took your bonuses right after you cut the throat of many good agents and employees. You smile to the agents but you are not a friend, you have become the enemy, and not because of the employees or agents. Its because you have no idea how to lead and you hire inept people. You all stand up there and think your s hit don't stink. Guess what? Its does and all of the agents know it. 7 out of 10 agents are unhappy, the balance have brown on their nose from placing it up your a ss or just young and don't know any better yet. You are losing your best agents Jack!
