Pros

One week intense training in Chicago is very good. Field training and support is available after the initial class room style training. Small stipend for first 6 weeks and great new hire bonus schedule that's realistic to achieve. Some leads provided. Great incentive plans. Benefits offered after 6 months to a year depending on the specific benefit.

Cons

Need to be highly motivated with good work ethic! Cold calling is a must! The leads that are provided are often over worked and cherry picked prior to distribution. The potential income is largely exaggerated. Name recognition is not what it should be competitively. Most importantly, one is often very surprised by one's expected paycheck. 100% commission job that's not a true con unless you don't understand that. 6 weeks of a stipend isn't much for an inexperienced agent. Don't leave a steady secure paycheck for promises of grandeur!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more competitive products. Need better broker compensation to help establish relationships. Need to be honest and realistic with recruits. Quality over quantity should become a business practice.

    Pros

    Good Products not much else to add. OK training. Compensation just ok. Benefits are good. Best thing is 401k. Too much ra ra.

    Pros

    You set your on hours. Excellent commission for sales. You also get residual commission. Big push for salesforce right now. Excellent place to start for someone new to the business. Base weekly salary for the 1st six months.

    Cons

    Cold calling and canvassing is tough. Lots of rejection but you just have to keep going. The sales opportunities are there, you just have to find them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looks like you are heading in the right direction.
