    Pros

    When I first looked up the reviews of this company, all I read was negative reviews from people who tried but failed at this. Once I realized where the reviews were coming from, I took them with a grain of sand. Although I only worked there for 6-9 months, I made top rookie within the first month! Here is my experience: Where do I start! This job taught me the things I was lacking as an independent agent. I learned a TON about health insurance and I loved how it was incorporated on a daily basis. This location in Polk County really believes in team work and no question is ever unanswered. The secretaries are also on the ball with making sure all the correct paperwork is turned in and done right. This company strives to help every agent become successful. The bonuses just continued to flow in and on top of that, you can win trips! Everyone wants to help you make money and they push you to succeed. Some people take encouragement the wrong way, hence why you read some negative reviews. If your thinking about this company, I say give it a shot!

    Cons

    What are my cons? If any, I would say that they actually hold you accountable which is a con if your a lazy person. If you don't like people pushing you to succeed then this isn't for you. They will lead you to the water but they can't force you to drink.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are number one for a reason. Keep doing what your doing!! 108!!
