Pros

The company truly believes in doing what is best for the policy holder.

Cons

They only want the best in the field. If you are not in the top 25%, it is easier to work as a financial rep for other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that the employees of the Agencies are CRITICAL to the success of the whole enterprise. Get more involved to insure that those employees are treated well in their agencies.
