Pros

Very flexible work schedule, conduct thorough training to ensure you are up to speed on products, obtain Health and Life Insurance licenses..

Cons

Independent agent, Commission only sales, no health or life insurance sales=no pay, agent pays all own fees, many local networking avenues already taken by senior agents, only get to manager with high sales, assumes a good salesperson makes a good manager, health insurance product pricing not very competitive after a couple of years.

Advice to Management

High enthusiasm makes for a good positive environment but can come across as phony and non-genuine at times too.

    Pros

    You set your own schedule, but if you are not putting in 8-10 hrs / day (during first 2-3 years)... you will fail.

    Cons

    IPA is not competitive with the online teaser rates offered by competitors. IPA becomes competitive after two consequtive years of 10-20% rates hikes from competitors to overcome those loss leader teaser rates. that

    Pros

    The company has a great environment and most of advisors are there for many years, which is very positive.

    Cons

    If you are a beginner you will be on your own. The trainings and meetings are not enough to build expertise. There is no formal training process.

    Advice to Management

    More accompanied field visits to customers
