Pros

Given that you have a good agent to work under the training is valuable. Hours are typical. usually co workers are competent and will help you understand and train, you can be certified to sell P&C and Life health insurance very quickly if you focus and study.

Cons

At times it can be weird because you are competing with coworkers for customers( pay is usually based on comission)

Advice to Management

Make more of an effort to diversify your market in different subgroups. Offer more sales training to new interns and employees.

    Pros

    Large brand, globally recognized. Great work/ life balance, as long as I was completing my projects on time, I basically could send the rest of my time as I chose.

    Cons

    The scope of the job is really geared towards generating new business (i.e. sales), began the position thinking it would be based more around marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Learned a lot about great opportunities with the firm while working for it, that I would have never associated with an insurance company. I would suggest management do a better job of promoting all of its needs as an employer.


  2. Tons of fun, not a full-time position

    Pros

    Internship was a lot of fun and a great introduction to the company.

    Cons

    The internship does not correlate to a full-time position with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Too much focus on rigid hierarchy (should work claims/underwriting to get to agent, should be agent to get to AFO, should be at AFO before working in higher management)
