    I worked at Aflac full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people and great team atmosphere.

    Cons

    As I'm sure others will say, the commission only pay is rough. Expenses are also through the roof -- gas, food, ducks to leave at businesses, etc. The market is so saturated, I would get told "you're the third Aflac rep today" on multiple occasions. We would also have daily meetings and would sometimes have to come in on weekends for prospecting events (which we had to call our "numbers" in for) all while working COMMISSION ONLY. Any and all negativity or questioning was met with swift rebuttal and accusations of "not being a team player" or "not having what it takes".

    Advice to Management

    I doubt they care about anything I have to say, and if they listened, I'm sure it would be my fault for not being driven or "wanting to work my buisness" enough.

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

    Pros

    if you stay for longer than 5 yrs can be good, if under 5 you do not own your business.

    Cons

    I notice with many teams, they make there own rules up, what can be sold for a group already in force and change it at times. Also put condition's on bundling which many clients don t like after they find out. I think this is twisting the sell. I m not in favor of that. I want my business to stay on the books. Also i am asked to pay a fee for selling to the team if i want to stay. PS: they don t help us to earn it in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Ask all the question s before you start. Management does not or can t tell you everything at time of interview.

    I have been working at Aflac full-time

    Pros

    - Mediocrity is frequently rewarded
    - Work produced "on time" is valued much higher than accuracy or effectiveness.

    Cons

    - Leadership is deeply unprofessional and lacks the polish / knowledge one would expect of a Fortune 500 firm
    - No opportunity to develop skills by working with peers: you'll never learn an industry best-practice here
    - Location, location, location.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people; Stop promoting internally unless candidates demonstrate skills that are externally validated; silo-ed teams and NDA-s don't promote good working environments; Human Resources are neither humane nor resourceful -- fix that.
