    Not a bad place to make some money. I find it hard to want to plant my flag here for the long term.

    Pros

    casual atmosphere, flexible hours, coworkers are nice

    Cons

    management is a little disorganized; raises are hard to come by; since it is a small company, it is hard to move up.

    Advice to Management

    listen your workers and explain why some management actions are taken

    Pros

    Weekends off?
    There was free parking

    Cons

    They treat all employees as if they can replace you tomorrow with a part-time employee. The CEO has full time employees on a 45 hour work week (is this for taxes or something???) and all agents can have their pay structure redone at the drop of the CEO's dime.

    The agent's pay structure used to change monthly at times and people would be fired before they were to receive a bonus.

    The benefits are pretty poor and expensive if you elect to be covered. All around you can find much better opportunities.

    Pros

    none that I can think of

    Cons

    Possible you will work a 20-30 hour week, bring in money for the owner, and be paid less than a child making Nikes in a 3rd world country (nothing).

    Pay plan changed as often as some change underwear

    Follow up on faxes is often non existant

    owner is a lying, greedy snake

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a lying, greedy snake

    Pros

    You control the hours you work, but you really need to work 50-60 hours a week. Work from home. Technology wise they continue to make improvements.

    Cons

    It takes 9-18 months(not 3-6mos) to to build a working pipeline that will generate, maybe $45k a year. No benefits at all, you pay for all your licenses and E&O insurance and payroll taxes. Fresh leads are few, they always say there are 11,0000 fresh leads in their lead bank which have been called many times over the last 6 months. This is sales and they do a great job at selling a high income position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the same approach to hiring people, because there is still a lot people unemployed and desparate for smoe income.

    All of the people are very nice. You learn a lot about life insurance broking and management coaches you all the way.

    Cons

    Office culture is very boring. People do not seem like they want to be there every day. Very strict about taking a 30 minute lunch break.

    Pros

    You can quit as soon as you realize that you have been taken for a fool. Hope that you get out before you are in too far.

    Cons

    Commitments are all slanted one way. YOU COMMIT, but you get no commitments. You are expected to work plenty, but because arbitrary ratios are put on your performance ratios, you end up not getting paid what you thought you were promised!!! You think you have some control, but you do not.

    Advice to Management

    Beware the Dept. of Labor and the Better Business Bureau.

    Pros

    Training is thorough and professional.

    Cons

    Sales staff is poorly treated by the numerous levels of management who do little but draw a paycheck from this company. Compensation and benefits are below industry standard. Responsibilities and minimum performance levels are ever changing and almost always increasing. When a large number of the sales support and recruiting staff were let go in late 2009, the bulk of their work became the responsibility of the sales staff. Sales goals for the sales staff were not adjusted for the increased workload and sales staff was not additionally compensated for the extra workload.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminating sales support people whose work enables Sales talent to do what they do best (which is sell) was a foolish and shortsighted strategy. Hire and train competent support staff and recruiters or the Sales talent you do have will find work elsewhere.
