Pros

Awesome Training! Good $$$ for the 1st year! I did great and hit their pacesetter 40 and 60 which means you sell 100 life insurance policies in your first year. You make 70-80% of the premium paid meaning approx $50-100k in your first year! You ever wonder what Bill Gates lives like? Try this job.

Cons

After the first year they pull the carpet out and start charging you for rent, decrease your commission, and see if you can survive. If you haven't created a clientele of millionaires you won't make it! SO get your training, get your licenses (they pay for them 6 and 63), then get hired elsewhere.

Advice to Management

They ARE the best Life insurance company...Period!....But if you want more talent pay the $$$.
