    I have been working at iCan Benefit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some cool co-workers. 40 hour week, unless overtime offered and elected.

    Cons

    Seem to only care about a few "insider" managers and agents. No real money to be made. These folks have been mildly successful, despite THEMSELVES. Hire 20 and 30 somethings - some that treat very experienced former business owners and agents like they are lucky to speak to them.

    Advice to Management

    Take some management and leadership courses. Don't forget to be nice to the people you meet on the way up, because they are the same people you are going to meet on the way down.

    I have been working at iCan Benefit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working at iCan Benefit Group are my co-workers

    Cons

    The downside about working at iCan Benefit Group is it's inept, crisis management

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is understand your overall role, act like leaders and not a high school clique. Management should manage their teams and not be "buddy buddy" with one or two employees

    Pros

    Good base salary & commission. Will allow you to start with just 1 state license. They will do the paperwork to get you additional state licenses.

    Cons

    Will not allow you to carry over any unused vacation time. Best leads go to senior reps.

    Advice to Management

    Extend lunch to one hour. Leads should be distributed in a more even handed manner.


  6. Good opportunity

    I worked at iCan Benefit full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Guaranteed salary; generous pto; casual dress code

    Cons

    Sub-standard insurance products geared toward the poor and indigent; small commissions, if you even ever get what's owed; long, boring hours on the phone talking to people with a "ghetto" mentality; co-workers, who will throw you under the bus to steal a deal; overly-compliant rules that are forever changing; managers who regularly nitpick over your monitored calls; short lunch breaks of only 1/2 hour; extreme favoritism toward certain employees, who get the "priority" calls; little or no chance to advance within the company, unless you are one of the chosen few (no religious implication intended)

    Advice to Management

    Stop reneging on your promises to your agents regarding commissions, treat all agents fairly and equally, lengthen the lunch hour to one hour, and for goodness sake, modify those bloated executive salaries (totaling over $1,000,000), 'cause they're not earning them! And that goes for the CEO's wife as well.

    I have been working at iCan Benefit full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The potential to make money is here and the energy in the office is very good. Not stuffy or corporate feeling almost everyone I have encounter has been very friendly and helpful.We're making deals and positive energy is following. I've been to the Boca location Miramar seems to have a better vibe and more open atmosphere.

    Cons

    Leads can be so so

    Advice to Management

    A bonus for less deals would be nice. Better products and offer benefits.

    Pros

    Upper management is helpful and encouraging, genuinely committed to the success of the individuals on their teams. I feel it is a great, healthy working environment - friendly and supportive. Open to learning new and innovative ways to help the business grow.

    Cons

    I can't think of any at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the supportive atmosphere and genuine kindness.

    I worked at iCan Benefit full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Agents are mostly good people and HR Mgr. really cares about the employees

    Cons

    Management talks alot but never follows through on what they say. No benefits available for agents and commissions are low and sometimes not paid.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and spend a little money for benefits and decent wages.

    Pros

    They solicit you with a small gtd salary, but fire you after one or two days with low production!

    Cons

    Confusing advertising produces confused leads, working hours till 9 pm (who wants to be called by a telemarketer at 9pm?) Terrible choice of insurance products. Must sell association memberships to get bonus. AD&D commission is the lowest I've ever seen in the industry. High turnover, Revolving door operation.

    Advice to Management

    Have a nice day, see ya.
