-Good benefits

Cons

-Not enough underwriters/service workers in the Alabama/Georgia area
-Poor communication within the company

Advice to Management

Help agents grow by allowing them to excel at what they do best in their market- selling Life Insurance isn't everything.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Each State Farm agent will offer different incentives. You choose the hours and days you want to work.

    Cons

    Most agents will want to 1099 you. This means that you are not covered under workers compensation, you don't get health benifits, and no paid time off.

    Advice to Management

    Agents should all treat their employees the same. Consistency would be nice.
