    I have been working at State Farm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Able to "be your own boss" (but not really)

    Cons

    So many cons:
    * Low commission
    * Inexperienced Sales Leadership (a 3 year agent does not make a successful sales leader)
    * Expectations are not realistic
    * Saturation of the market with State Farm Agents - it used to mean something to be a Good Neighbor, but now if you are willing to spend your own money they will hire you
    * Costs going up to be an agent - more items that you need to purchase including brochures, etc…
    * Really just a glorified employee - yes you are your own boss, but really only when it comes to spending your own money to benefit State Farm
    * NO ownership of your book of business

    Advice to Management

    Rethink how you are growing your agency base. Don't put "leaders" into positions just because they had a few good years as an agent - this does not make them competent leaders . LIsten to your agents and give them time to grow their agency - don't spit them out after 1 year because they have not grown as fast as you would like. Too many people getting into the agency side just to become sales leaders. Don't you want more 20, 30, 40 year agents?
