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

Pros

Freedom to Set Your Own Hours.

Cons

They give you no leads. It's up to you to bring friends, family and/or acquaintences to quickly sell insurance policies to. You MIGHT get lucky and inherit a former salesperson's book of business, but most are riddled with shady sales, poor service and/or horrific problems that the former salesperson was pressured into by quotas.

Their claim to fame is "innovative" insurance policies that really aren't at all innovative. Customers see right through the come-ons.

Advice to Management

The old insurance sales model no longer works.

    I have been working at AGLA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When you are doing the job well, you are left alone to get it done. When you have struggles, there is a team to help you learn what you need to be successful. Great training, products, and compensation.

    Cons

    Its a hard job if you work it easy and an easy job when you work it hard.

    Advice to Management

    National Advertising Campaigns.

    Pros

    They have actual benefits; like pension, health insurance, dental etc!
    They have an excellent cutting edge product- Critical and Chronic health accelerated benefit riders at no charge. You are a W-2 employee; they part of your SS tax and withhold Fed and State.

    Cons

    Front office is the focus of the company's energy, NOT the agents. They do every stupid thing they can to slow you down. They make you get signatures for and and every little thing. The underwriting is sometimes loose and sometimes so stupidly uptight as to make you insane.
    The pay per issued app is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the 1950's way of looking at business. Get rid of the stupid Pad. Facilitate your agents efforts DON'T hinder them at every opportunity! Too many stupid and time consuming meetings (and reports).
