    Current Employee - Career Agent  in  Plantation, FL
    Current Employee - Career Agent in Plantation, FL

    Pros

    Some of the reasons I like working are that the staff is very friendly and supportive. They gave me an excellent training experience because they explained how the business worked and provided many examples and tips and tricks that would have taken me years to figure out on my own. They treated us to breakfast and lunch everyday. I also like the office itself - its very clean and crisp looking. The desks are nice a spacious and the kitchen is modern with goods like snacks and coffee.

    Cons

    As a new hire there are none to mention at this point. The industry is not for everyone. You will struggle for example if you have very few contacts in the area such as acquaintances, friends, and family in the area because that's how one starts his or her business in this industry - by setting up appointments with people you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to mention so far.

    Pros

    - Comprehensive virtual, classroom and field training upon hire.
    - Great company culture with managers with 20+ years of experience
    - Marketing ideas are encouraged from agents
    - Company focus on community involvement, strives to being a face in the community opposed to just a voice on the phone

    - Upper management shows interest (CFO attends new agent orientation)

    Commission only (you get paid for how hard you work)

    Hire younger agents that will adapt to newer technologies and bring creative new ideas to the company

    Pros

    Good company to start your career in.

    Cons

    Learn how to kiss up to management and you will be able to keep your job. Quality people always leave within first year.

    New Agents Don't Waste Your Time! Training! What training! Worked in Plantation, Florida Office.

    Current Employee - Career Agent in Plantation, FL

    Pros

    They have o.k. products, their No Lapse UL is probably one of the best you will find out there, based on cost.
    The only reason I gave them a star was because the company it self is not bad.

    Cons

    ZERO Training. They give you a cheap business lead list to call, and tell you to talk to more people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that have trained agents before and managers that have truly been successful themselves. The two guys in the Plantation office, who are supposed to be the managers, don't produce, so how can they possibly help any other agents to be successful. DO NOT HIRE NEW AGENTS IF YOU HAVE NO TRAINING IN PLACE FOR THEM, IT IS A WASTE OF TIME FOR THE NEW AGENT AND A WASTE OF COMPANY MONEY!!

    Incredibly friendly workplace, save a couple

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Scottsdale, AZ
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Scottsdale, AZ

    Pros

    Managers are understanding, encouraging, and knowledgeable. Majority of employees are genuinely nice people. Community involvement is widely encouraged. New ideas are encouraged.

    Cons

    Vacation plus sick time rather than PTO. Only one genuinely rude person in the office. Lack of communication between committees, but that is being worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rudeness does not equal effective leadership. Liaisons between committees and employees affected by committee decisions can/should be improved. Marketing research needs a lot more emphasis.

    Poor, no room for advancement, your ideas are never welcomed.

    Current Employee - Your Better Off Somewhere Else  in  Scottsdale, AZ
    Current Employee - Your Better Off Somewhere Else in Scottsdale, AZ

    Pros

    Balance of work and life, location, hours of operation, not much need of overtime, dual monitors, fancy office, bonuses. Average.

    Cons

    You are just a puppet there, no body cares about quality of work, customer service, being helpful or anything that helps a company grow. It is about who you know and not about what you know. There is no room for advancement, only four people to help agents, agents that want to sell their products but yet there is no one there to help them. Community Service is only done with the Arizona Sports teams so that everybody has a chance of getting an autograph. If you are one who likes to be scolded or has no concept of thinking for themselves, this would be a fantastic place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on growing the company and not about the most current "technology" that has nothing to do with servicing agents and customers. Stop treating the real bread and butter of the company like they do not exist, encourage aknowledgment of others work and not just the favorites. Start over with a clean slate.
