Pros

great work life balance.. can work from home and determine the hours/ time you want to sit down with clients. You can take time off when you need it, no questions. There is a very laid back office enviornment.( business casual/ casual) Lots of continuning training, and opportunities to learn more about insurance.

Cons

some managers are really touch and go.. kinda of figure it out yourself, which can be stressful when you have no background in Insurance. Because it is a contracted/ 1099 position you have to put your own money in to start, if you don't have the money to put in, i.e ( networking meetings, lead money, marketing money) it will be hard to see any financial return for months. There are no benefits that come with the job, so you will have to purchase your own insurance, dental and vision, and set up your own retirement accounts/plans. There is also a high level of turn-over do to the lack of benefits, and financial incentive.

Advice to Management

Have a better incentive package for new hires and employees, it is difficult enough to get started since all of the start up comes out of pocket. It would be a better incentive if there was atleast some benefits that accompanied the position.

    Pros

    Team leader is the best sales manager I've had in regards to support.
    Training on new products is on-going.
    If you have a great circle of influence and/or capital to market yourself, you can make a great salary.
    Marketing material templates available (cost to print on agent's dime).

    Cons

    I was told my sales leader would provide me leads on a ongoing basis .Your given about 50 leads when you 1st start. After that you are on your own for leads.

    100% commission job/1099 employee.

    You will need your own money to buy leads and to join networking groups. This "investment" for leads and networking is not discussed in the interviewing process. If you don't have the funds to buy leads, you will be told to walk the streets and cold call businesses (also known as "walk & talks).

    Branch manager is always coming up with lame marketing campaigns that you can buy into and the results are horrible and a waste of the agent's money. Marketing Insphere as a company should be done with corporate funds.

    With Obama Care, commissions are lower, and more cross-selling of supplemental products (life, accident, critical care, etc. . .) will have to be sold in order to make the same commission prior to Obama Care.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management/Corporate should spend corporate money on marketing the "Insphere" company/brand and not rely on the agents to do this. The general public does not know who or what Insphere is or does as a company. Brand recognition can & will open a lot doors and would help the agent when calling leads for appointments/or when cold calling. Be honest of the financial investment needed by the agent to start working at Insphere.
