    I have been working at Cunningham Agency full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Paid based on your work ethic and performance. Have made more money than any degree position I have held. You don't even need a HSD to work here. Leadership, Coaching and great culture of mentors in the office.

    Cons

    Not recommended for someone who don't have a good work ethic and that want to be paid for not putting in the work. If you have a hard time leading yourself then you will have a hard time leading others.

    I have been working at Cunningham Agency

    Pros

    It’s a very inspiring place to work at. People will notice when you’re nervous or feeling discouraged and they will go out of their way to help you feel better. The weekly agency huddles are filled with valuable information to give everyone an equal opportunity to 100% succeed and grow.

    Cons

    A lot of competition (but kinda a good thing)

    I worked at Cunningham Agency full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -A select few can make it work -Monthly agency fun days were exciting -Charitable work was great

    Cons

    -Atrocious turnover rate, even for the insurance industry. They have gone so far as to put a bell for people who quit to ring as they walk out of the door. - They have you use a bait and switch method and scare tactics to sell insurance - You have to harass the leads are given in order to reach the quotas they require - you will be yelled and cursed at. -The "leads" provided are often 1-2 years old, but I even had some that were 4 years old - Hire people as an "Independent Contractor" yet you are expected to work as if you are an employee receiving a salary and benefits. (i.e. mandatory call nights, meetings, etc.) -Held weekly "mental health" and motivation meetings as a team because this job was so challenging. I fully endorse having a focus on the mental health of the people you're managing. However, there is probably a bigger underlying issue at hand if its necessary to constantly have to motivate and encourage employees and check in on their mental state.

    Did you know the %E2%80%9Cbell%E2%80%9D you referenced is a replica of the same bell Navy seals ring when they quit. We try to give individuals such as yourself an opportunity to approach life with the mentality that before you start something to make up in your mind you will do what you need to do to succeed. Maybe if you would have taken the approach to serve our members and not attempt to use scare tactics your results would have turned out better. We%E2%80%99re confident your experience with us will allow you to be better in your future endeavors. Btw it%E2%80%99s a privilege to service the members we are partnered to work with as well as our policy holders. We don%E2%80%99t think you should make fun of people who struggle with mental health problems as it%E2%80%99s a serious issue in our world and we unlike many employers do care about our people which is why we try to help them in this area as well as other things you will never get a chance to experience. We appreciate your opinion and wish you all the best. God bless you!
