    Pros

    Limited ability to grow a business but can service your clients.

    Cons

    They lie to you, you are not important to the company. They will prove that to you. You have no control. If the company is losing money, they will raise premiums and you will lose money. Finally, you can not accurately predict your pay. Each month is a lottery gamble.

    Not a bad place to start in the insurance/financial field, but don't stay long

    Pros

    Financially strong company
    Decent salary
    They pay for office, internet, phone, computer, etc
    Ability to earn commission and bonuses plus posh trips for the very few

    Cons

    Sales quotas are extremely difficult to meet consistently
    Steep penalties to your income if you miss quota even one month
    Can't specialize and be great in one area, forced to sell auto/home/life/investments every single month
    Management gets bonuses by hiring people so most don't care about a person staying with the company long term. They expect nearly everyone they hire to come on board, sell to every friend and family member and within a year as the quotas start getting higher and higher, the recruit will wash out and the business will get transferred to a career rep who's been loyal to the company for years.
    Rates are not competitive for auto insurance, middle of the road for home, used to be good for commercial but not anymore and their life insurance (which you are required to sell a lot of) is very mediocre with horrible underwriting.
    They say you will have freedom over your schedule when in truth, if you want to meet your quota or exceed it to earn extra commission, you'll be working 60+ hours per week including most nights and possibly weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field more. Let managers have more control of their agency. As it is now, they are glorified middle men and paper pushers with zero control of their agency except for how the office should be decorated.
