At first it was fine but sales support dwindled over time.

I worked at Western & Southern Financial full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good training and better products than most. Good reputation when you have to sell their products. fair pay at first.

Cons

Leads dried up quickly and soon enough you are compelled to sell to friends and family. Managerial support also waned quickly as they move on to new agents.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Salespeople should not have to scramble so for leads. managers need to do much more to support sales staff in the field. Fewer promises about the plethora of good leads available.

    I worked at Western & Southern Financial

    Pros

    Super strong financially from past investment experience.

    Cons

    Good-ole boy system where people are promoted by being one of the fair-haired people, or sucking up enough. Recent VP change on the 4th floor was needed for years. And now that it has happened, it was spun as his idea instead of the truth; that is, he was nothing but a rogue and it finally caught up with him and forced him out of the position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being blinded by the money you have a look at the fundamental problems in your organization...

    I have been working at Western & Southern Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Free lunch and breakfast (although I could take it or leave it), subsidized parking

    Cons

    antiquated systems, no work/life balance (very inflexible), mgmt will not listen to opinions of associates (or at least take them seriously)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You seriously need to value your employees more on a day-to-day basis, not just once or twice a year with special events. And due away with the professional dress code, it does nothing but bring morale way down.
