    I worked at Independent Producers of America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule, conduct thorough training to ensure you are up to speed on products, obtain Health and Life Insurance licenses..

    Cons

    Independent agent, Commission only sales, no health or life insurance sales=no pay, agent pays all own fees, many local networking avenues already taken by senior agents, only get to manager with high sales, assumes a good salesperson makes a good manager, health insurance product pricing not very competitive after a couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High enthusiasm makes for a good positive environment but can come across as phony and non-genuine at times too.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company

    Cons

    They Lie about everything. The "Leads" that they provide are a joke. You're better off calling out of the phone book. I only knew one person in the 3 years I was there that was successful and she had a marketing budget of $3000/mo!! That was in the whole company! The only people that make out id the ownership group.

    I worked at Independent Producers of America as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    On the surface it looks great. The truth is everybody is lying.

    Cons

    No one should ever have to pay for a job. If you want to sell insurance, there are plenty of legitimate places that will help you obtain the right licensing. The state you work in will do the background check. You don't need to pay extra for that as they are simply pocketing the money. Also, they seem to be confused about what an independent contractor is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give it up. Seems the whole world is on to you now.

    I have been working at Independent Producers of America as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    You set your own schedule, but if you are not putting in 8-10 hrs / day (during first 2-3 years)... you will fail.

    Cons

    IPA is not competitive with the online teaser rates offered by competitors. IPA becomes competitive after two consequtive years of 10-20% rates hikes from competitors to overcome those loss leader teaser rates. that
