    Place is great. Fast paced challenging and fun.

    Cons

    Greater focus on training and development of new employees would allow for greater responsibility in shorter period of time

    Pros

    Lots of really smart people who want to learn, grow and further develop their careers.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism, not enough attention paid to the people in the trenches, mostly a boys club who keep their boys around whether or not they contribute.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell your front line talent and middle management. Be true to your principals or just rip them off the wall.

    Pros

    friendly atmosphere, good people. Good health benefits. They had plenty of agents come from another call center where they were not treated especially well.

    Cons

    The GRIND of outbound-insurance sales cannot be for everyone! Some like it, some came from other environments and found a home here.

    Advice to Management

    None that I can think of. Upper mgmt rarely shows up here.

    Pros

    Average pay and benefits were okay.

    Cons

    Freeze on raise and bonus for years. No recognition for hard work. Lots of finger pointing - blaming. No life and all work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging workers and hire more competent employees and managers.

    Pros

    It's a job and the benefits are a plus. Everyone here is from a different background and knows nothing about the insurance industry. I doubt the company will be around in 20 years

    Cons

    Get rid of the staff and hr recruiter they know nothing about the insurance industry. They will Have 4 interviews with you and you will Never hear back from them

    Advice to Management

    Used to be attorneys for aig Nuff said....

    Pros

    Competitive Base Salary. Relatively low investment in license (and in some cases they pay for training for you). Hours are capped at 40 (for non-management). Laid back atmosphere. Very cool people to work with. If you are focused on selling and do not let customers control the call, you can make a high 40s or maybe even 50k. Expectations of more than that are irrealistic.

    Cons

    Management can at times be disconnected with employee needs. They are a young company and are still figuring out bonus structure, lead sources, financial incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your team. If they are happy, you will be happy. Do not tolerate terrible sales numbers simply because people are pleasant and nice. If you have top earners, take care of them. No ass kissing needed, but there seems to be an issue with keeping top talent.

    Pros

    Had some good co-workers,a lot of us had great careers before the depression and were forced into this greed driven,your just another number environment to feed our families.The health insurance is good if you need it for your family,and it's a fairly clean environment. Liked being associated with MetLife and their staff as they were always friendly and professional when visiting the operation. They were the client we were selling Life Insurance for as captive agents.through TZ Insurance Solutions.

    Cons

    Only a chosen few on the sales staff are given the opportunity to make a decent living wage.They are fed leads from all sources,had three to four times the monthly sales as the rest of the staff and won all contests and prizes offered by the company during promotions. It was degrading,depressing and killed the morale on the sales floor. The computer platforms and sales application process changed constantly until it took so long to take an application over the phone it became unbearable,really.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your mistakes,I saw many talented,intelligent agents leave because of the pay structure, micromanagement , and above mentioned show stoppers. Good luck,and please remember,your not the only game in town.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, no drugs background check (not that I care, but some people would find it as a benefit). You learn how to sell...

    Cons

    Bad leads, management has poor work ethic. Training process was the worst experience ever in my life. Top management's experience is selling magazines, not sure if this is ok for the Insurance Business.

    Advice to Management

    Improve training process, invest more in coaching and change the entire management team.
