    I worked at Aflac as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Brand recognition is best in the industry, and the products are solid. Plus, you do get to set your own schedule.

    Cons

    No help with leads, and no defined territories. Everyone is scrambling all over each other, but management still expects you to be a "team player." Training is minimal, and you incur all expenses of the business, including licensing.

    Advice to Management

    Set defined territories, and invest in lead assistance for new associates.

    Pros

    Possibility of a good income. Very good products.

    Cons

    Very minimal training. No base salary. Although integrity is highly touted, it can be very different in the field. Lack of assigned territories has agents driving too many miles to accounts, while accounts in their area are taking care of by agents from far afield.

    Advice to Management

    Give your agents a strong base training course.

    Pros

    Some freedom and after training, you may be able to set your own hours.

    Cons

    They really don't train you, they just want to sign up your friends and family! It's a multi- level organization and commission only.

    Advice to Management

    They could care more for their employees and not just use them.
