    I have been working at Aflac full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to be your own boss, trips, bonuses, renewable income (instead of one time commission), career instead of just a job. FORTUNE 500 and a World's most Ethical Company. Great training (at least here in Wyoming) and a family mentality. Great family/work balance.

    Cons

    No base pay, can be a slow start at first, you have to be very organized and self-driven, have to be licensed in life and health to sell insurance (but my management help with the process).

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose focus on your clients, while trying to grow. Opening new accounts is wonderful, but not at the loss of your current customers. Balance is possible. Also, reward great customer service along with great sales.

    Pros

    As an associate you get the opportunity to earn exactly what you're worth. When I started I had ZERO experience with any kind of insurance but through the Aflac Corporate Training (Sales School), classroom training and my District Manager helped me every single day for years and made sure that I earned an income. You get the freedom and flexibility to take time off when you need to but also get to work as much as you want. You are always moving forward and your clients are amazing! I definitely recommend working here! If you are a go getter and want to succeed then you will get all of the help and support you need to be successful and the sky is the limit!

    Cons

    If you are lazy or expecting to sit on Facebook all day and slack off like some other jobs you won't make any money. There were a lot of people that started with me that made all sorts of excuses, barely worked and when they did "go to work" they didn't do what was asked of them so they didn't make any money then blamed the company when they failed. If you want to slack off this is NOT for you!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunity and keep up the great work!!

    I have been working at Aflac full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I started working at Aflac a few months out of college in 2006. It is the only career I have ever known and I am thankful I came across an opportunity most people are either not aware of, overlook or are afraid of trying. I was an Agent for 6 years and have now been a District Sales Coordinator for 4 years. Aflac changed my life in a lot of positive ways but none more impactful than my perspective about success and failure.

    My favorite pros about the job:
    Incredible Income & Renewals
    Ability to control work / life balance
    Great friendships among team
    Bonuses & Trips
    Great relationships with clients
    Helping People

    Cons

    Like any new business, it takes time to build.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change the compensation package!

    I have been working at Aflac (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team environment; awesome incentives and bonuses; reputable company that pays out benefits to policyholders ... often times within 24 hours of claim filing; agent appreciation is strong and they treat us like royalty. Start up costs very low. Extensive training school. If can get through first couple of years can earn six figures. Easiest with spousal or family support. RETIREMENT can be a dream with stock options and after 10 years in agents get to keep their residuals 100%. GREAT for younger adults to earn massive opportunities for advancement and income. Family oriented.

    Cons

    Challenging to get started; lots of miles in the car; need a savings or familial support/ nest egg to begin.

    Advice to Management

    Lead don't manage. INVEST in your team. Don't pre-judge. Stop gossip in it's tracks and maintain synergy as fiercely as you maintain growth, recruiting, and sales benchmarks. A solid team handles all those issues better than separation between cliques.
