Freedom to work your own hours.
Flexibility

Training is not very good at all.
A lot of driving and traveling.
Lack of support of regional and district managers to help you get started.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to recruit only people who have the work ethic and backgound to succeed in the insurance business. Provide more in depth training on products and how to sell them.

    Pros

    Great commissions on their products. Products are strong policies comparative to other firms' products. Freedom to set your own pace/schedule. Leads are provided by the company based on your percentage of the office's total production. Great people to work with overall.

    Cons

    Regional offices have in/out groups, and if you're not in, you don't get leads. More specifically, management will tell you if you're not producing, you don't get leads. This is problematic because if you don't get leads, it's incredibly hard to produce, and once you reach this point, you're put in the "out" group and the only support you'll receive is offhanded remarks like, "make more phone calls" with the 3-5 year old leads they give out in substitution for newer leads. They give these newer leads to the top performers. This creates a very wide gap between the successful and not-so-successful agents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    --Adhere to the company policy of giving out newly-received leads based on a percentage of production. If an agent produces 10% of the office production, he should get that percentage in new leads.
    --Stop insulting their intelligence by giving them prior respondents and labeling them "new leads", because if they're doing their job and calling them, they'll find out that they're not new anyway.
    --Be more supportive (and less cynical) of your agents that are honestly trying, but failing. Treat it like a business, not an MLM scheme with a "what is this person doing for me" mentality.
    --Create a more exciting atmosphere at weekly sales meetings. Simply meeting and going over the numbers produced, and asking agents what they're going to do the next week isn't motivational or helpful. Set up training for different policies at different meetings, in order to ensure no one is misrepresenting the policies. Call in local professionals that teach non-RN related skills that would assist with being a successful agent, such as organizational skills, time management, etc.
