    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

    Pros

    There is potential for great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Typical sales environment, but with poor leadership -- life is good IF quotas are met; and is unprofessional, to the point of volatile, when quotas are not met.

    Advice to Management

    Those in leadership roles should be held just as accountable as those who aren't.

    Pros

    Some very nice people, useful education, some flexibility, product isn't bad. Can get some benefit from early training which will be useful when you get a real job.

    Cons

    All commission makes the dregs rise to the top. No consequences for bad behavior. The same manager who stole your lead will go around talking you down about how you made them do it. Management feels very entitled. You're your own business until it comes to money. Then you're a doormat, and you'll be called out for being a doormat.

    Advice to Management

    The new catchphrase is "Own It." All the rewards are for bad behavior and that starts with management. Own it.
