Growing pains

Insurance Sales Agent (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

ProsThey have worked on the work life balance in the Sales department. You a guaranteed a commission even without hitting qualifiers. There is potential for growth for the right individual. Majority of people are nice and will help wherever possible. Great first insurance job. No cold calling.

ConsThere is not as much overtime as there was in the past. The compensation plan works well only if you can cross sell all products of insurance. Majority of the partner products cannot be sold by the basic sales agent, it must be passed over to another agent. Management is only concerned about conversion and sales per day, not about quality unless there is a problem. Management does little to address the individual concern, instead they quote research as if that is the only fact to take into account. No uniform policy. Some management will say one thing, others will do the opposite. I have had arguments with management about processes and after a month of bantering the manager admitted they were wrong. No kickback on renewal business. Your book resets at the beginning of every month.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the potential your employees have and allow them to grow. Do not sidestep questions with complicated answers. Instead of focus groups of five to ten agents, allow for more agents so that a broader scope can be discussed. The new comp plan of $7 a policy is not enough to keep people motivated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The negative reviews are pretty accurate. There are better companies out there to work for.

    Pros: People are nice Atmosphere is laid back for the most part… Cons: NO clear expectations are set, however they do push numbers. NO real training. Overwhelming workload, almost everyone works late. You are expected to… Advice to Senior Management: Offer employees an extra days pay for the holiday time they work. Set… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
