Pros

Once you have reached a point of licensure and given every success to building clients, this type of role can be very rewarding.
There are hours of preparation for the State Board of Insurance testing, and additional knowledge needed to learn the insurance products you will represent, so this is the "roadwork" needed aside from maintaining hours of contact with potential clients.

Cons

You work for a commission salary. This is a very stressful position for those who depend on regular pay.

    Pros

    Great training, freedom to succeed. They really want you to be successful and genuinely try to help you.

    Cons

    You start to feel like a geriatric predator searching and harassing old people. For the ones that need the help, its great, but most of the time they don't want your help. Also the commission structure is good, but the real money comes after you put your time in and your residuals build up. Until then, its pretty lean.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new people have the $20,000 saved up before they start. People go broke working for the company. They can't afford the job.

    Cons

    Upper management don't practice what they preach since I was middle management I saw a lot of things on the inside that weren't what i call fair or ethical. Open door policy, "not."
    To much micromanagement

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach
