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

Pros

Company operates ethically and fairly by adhering to "The Aflac Way" institutional values & culture.
Work/Life Balance
Great Benefits
Access to Senior Management

Cons

Columbus GA not the most exciting place
Too many long-time local employees

Advice to Management

It's amazing to work at a company where the CEO eats lunch in the cafeteria and is accessible to almost every employee. You feel like you're working at a small, family-run company but it's really an incredibly successful Fortune 150 company. Hard thing to pull off in today's environment.

    Pros

    Helpful employees. Sales coordinators want you to succeed. This should be obvious because they receive cuts of the sales your mentors get from the appointments you set. The cold calling is good practice for other jobs, few pitches are more morose than aflac. You are essentially asking business owners permission to enter their premises and try to sell their employees income replacement coverage in the event of accident, injury, heart attack, stroke or cancer. You get to set your own schedule as a full time agent or an intern.

    Cons

    Must complete the licensing exam before you are entitled to co You need to come up with your own leads. Although the company has a sales genie account. You must be self motivated. In previous sales jobs, it was competition between my peers that drove me to succeed. Most people here are not self starters, and almost no one makes cold calls.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to say what they can do better. Most young people, with a worthwhile college degree and some sales acumen won't want a 1099 job. I think its important for other young salesman to work with their peer groups.
