I have been working at Allstate full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Working for an insurance agent allows some flexibility in your family life when you need to be off for your children's school activities or doctor appointments.

Cons

In an insurance agency, you are limited on the time of year you can take a vacation because the boss always get the first choice of days off and he or she can take off as much as they like.

Advice to Management

There is any opportunity for advancement outside or inside of the agency.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Salary pay + commission, one-on-one customer service, networking, some slow days and some busy, not everyday is the same

    Cons

    Hours - may have to stay later to close on a policy, push sales even though rates are so high, sort of feels like you have to lie to a customer to get business, you have to believe in the product to sell although inside you know it can be better.

    Advice to Management

    Better equip agents with the right training tools for their employees.
