    I have been working at ASSURANCE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I previously worked at Google and didn't have the freedom I have here to identify problems, create solutions, and push them into a prod test and watch the results. The company is growing incredibly fast so the volume of data moving through is unbelievable. Its fun to find a problem, solve it, and see the direct impact it makes on the business. Also get to work with brilliant, super down to earth people. Lots of cool...

    Cons

    Company is growing so fast that you do a lot of your own product management. Hiring standards might be too high so I've seen some decent product owners not get the job. Big space with lots of competition so the company is super stealth which makes it hard for candidates to learn about the opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    you can literally work from your bed. never get out of bed again! free leads that are literally forwarded to you from a transfer agent.

    Cons

    commissions are low. cancel rate is high. the transfer agents generally don't listen to the client or you before they've handed the client off so you get a lot of garbage.

    Advice to Management

    do some quality control on the front end of the process with those transfer agents.

    Pros

    With over 19 years of Life Insurance experience and 18 years in Direct Market, this is by far the best opportunity I have seen in the industry. Work from where you want, when you want, with unlimited free leads for closers. If you are licensed, have a computer, and high-speed Internet you are good to go. Assurance provides all the Leads, CRM, Dialer, and access to the best high value streamlined products and process in...

    With any advance technology there will be glitches. The great thing aboutAssurance, even though glitches can be frustrating they are there to fix them day and night in a very timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    In the fast-paced environment we work in, at times, the communication to changes being made, sometimes come after the changes are made. If we could communicate some of the changes prior to making them it would help overall awareness to the end-users.

    You will do great if you are ambitious - we want agents who are diligent and motivated. If I just described you...you’re golden.

    Pros

    By far, the best company I have ever worked for. Endless opportunities for growth and advancement if you put in the time, energy, and are dedicated to what you do. You feel valued as not just an employee, but as a team member in helping the company grow - and we are growing fast!

    Cons

    Bummer to have no 401k, but as a young startup rapidly growing, not having one yet makes sense.

      Pros

      You don't want to make these Glassdoor reviews so positive that they feel solicited or unbelievable, but it's hard for me to put an artificial damper on my enthusiasm. Here are the things that have mattered the most to me: * A mission that you can believe in, that also happens to drive by a disruptive and wildly successful business model. * A team of people who are passionate, highly competent, and positive.

      Cons

      People put in a lot of work. I'd say the expectations are roughly on par with a company like Amazon. This hasn't bothered me, because all of my projects have been engaging and impactful, but it has meant that I've needed to prioritize differently in my personal life. As of right now, there's no 401K program. This is disappointing, but mostly just an artifact of it being an early-stage company. I've also been told...

      Growing so fast everything changes every day so quickly - but I guess that's not necessarily a bad thing, just the nature of a startup
