    Pros

    you do start with a positive attitude

    Cons

    districts make a lot of promises and fail to hold up on them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you might want to actually take some time to train the recruits rather than let them sell to all their family and friends and you let them go leaving you stuck with all those policy's

    I have been working at Farmers Automobile Insurance as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    You own the business. Farmers subsidizes your pay for the first 3 years with $1000 increase each subsuquent year and if you achieve your targets, this subsidy never has to be paid back. Fully supportive training for the first 3 months and beyond to help you build your business quickly. Friendly people within the organization. Nicely packaged products for your customers. Farmers provides a nice number of internet leads to the agents on a daily basis for no change.

    Cons

    You have to work your butt off during the first year (as you would in any new business start up situation); There were some costs not mentioned by the recruiters that caught me by surprise like the $800 U4 background check and securities exams fees. However, they do give a nice bonus upon completion of the licensing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be up front about all costs the agents will encounter. The program is solid enough that most agents will not mind the fees, since those fees are compensated for in the completion bonus.
