I have been working at American Family Insurance

Pros

Opportunity to learn the Insurance Industry.

Cons

Uncompetitive insurance rates, very poor technology, overbearing management, lack of transparency, no benefits, poor pay, 1099 status - too much to list - stay away!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop taking advantage of the agent pool. Eliminate the abusive 1099 status, make the Agents employees, provide benefits as you do for company employees.

    I worked at American Family Insurance

    Pros

    Many good and dedicated people work for American Family Insurance. There are also many dedicated people in the field force who have worked with internal employees to make it the company it is.

    Cons

    Lack of support from the company to its employees. Lack of leadership at the top levels of the company in every department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to regain trust of the employees.

    I worked at American Family Insurance

    Pros

    Self-Employment if you know how to work the system to reap the tax benefits and such that come with being self employed

    Cons

    - Poor compensation compared to other comparable companies
    - Treat agents like slaves
    - NO BENEFITS
    - They are firing rural agents to get out of the market, basically redlining rural america
    - They will tell agents they are going to do one thing, and then do a completely different thing.
    - The executives got million dollar pay raises, yet the agents got pay decreases due to Amfam raising the rates to compensate the execs and then clients left, thus decreasing agent commissions
    - DO NOT WORK FOR AMFAM IF YOU ARE NOT IN A METRO AREA!!! they don't want to be in an area that is not urban and they will fire you for no reason at all
    - Can't trust corporate Amfam

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit! You care about nothing but yourself and your 'numbers' which are only twisted to make management look good. Management would sell their mother for a promotion or a pay raise. Do what you say you're going to do and maybe the agents and employees would trust you more than they do.
