Agent/Owner

Insurance Agent (Former Employee)

I worked at American Family Insurance as a contractor for more than 10 years

ProsYour own boss, you controll your destiny. Great trips, made many life long friends from clients. Helped many people and was looked at as leader in community.

ConsThreatened by management to produce, even if you are producing. Management manages by threats and intimidation. Company does not care for agents or employees, cares for company only. Quoting upper management "We are no longer a mom and pop store". So agents are on there own, watch your back! If company says they will not ever do something, watch out it's happening or in planning stages now (ie. cut commisions, sell insurance over internet, raise rates, ext).

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to treat agents as people, not numbers. You shouldnt step on others to advance yourself. Be honest even if you have to tell someone something they don't want to hear.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
