    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

    Wonderful work environment. Great folks who care about each other and want to help everyone succeed. Great supplemental insurance products.

    Cons

    Full commisssion pay. There is no base pay so your success depends upon your ability to sell insurance. Cold-calling is apart of the deal. Not a good fit for someone who is not good at meeting and talking to new people.

    Advice to Management

    I would consider offering your agents some sort of a base pay structure. Depending upon your location and the economy, success in insurance sales especially supplemental benefits, can be slow at times.

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

    Pros

    Great team of sales managers. Compensation for me has gone up every year I have been here, and its nice to know that you will make money regardless of getting new sales after one year. You get stock in Aflac and I have been on about 10 different trips since starting which were really great. If you work hard you get paid to help people. The ability to make your own schedule and not stuck on an office all day is also a pro.

    Cons

    Some of the agents don't work and complain too much, but I think that's anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the complainers.

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

    Pros

    I am not exaggerating, choosing Aflac has been the best career choice I've ever made for myself.
    * Control of where, when and with whom you do business.
    * Innovative, ethical and honest product/promise.
    * Supportive and educational team support.
    * No negative competition with your fellow agents even though you are all self employed.
    * Financial Freedom and control.

    Cons

    You must be dedicated. Working for yourself means you do need find your own accountability.

    No base salary, but you will quickly disciver that is by no means a draw back.

    Advice to Management

    Learn more about Aflac, read testimonials and talk to exisiting agents. You will quickly learn that the company truly is amazing.
