Pros

Good solid company, been around a long time

Cons

Health Insurance has been a nightmare, Mass changed to Huge Deductables and after meeting our deductable, they cancelled our Cobra Insurance. Guess they really don't want their employees or former employees to use the insurance. Called Mass about issues with their Cobra administrative company and was blown off. If this is how they treat their policy holders when they have a problem, good luck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your former employees better. Myself, family and friends are still policy holders, but probably not for long.

    The Financial Advisor title/position is misleading.

    Pros

    Is a commission only sales position so you do enjoy the benefits associated with a position like this.
    --Make your own schedule
    --Little involvement from Management
    --If you sell, your income potential is unlimited

    Cons

    The entire industry tries to disguise the true nature of the position. You are there for one reason, that reason is to sell life insurance policies. Yet, that's never said in any of your interviews, you are told you are there to "help" clients, you are able to sell many products, and so on. While there is some true to those things. Your primary and secondary responsibility is to sell life insurance policies. If you sell, your experience will be awesome. If you do not, not so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your recruits and your retention rate will increase. Less of them will be disappointed once they get started.

    Pros

    Unlimited potential with a solid company behind you. Definitely a leader in many ways in the life insurance industry, with great home office support.

    Cons

    No salary and full commission. Huge differences in organizational culture depending on what local Agency you work through because the General Agent's have tremendous flexibility on how to run things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase talent development and work on increasing retention rates. The communication on the local level is often quite poor within the Agency and is a major source of frustration among both new org and veterans.
