I have been working at Western & Southern Life full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Salary to start off and the managers always have time for you. Benefits including healthcare and dental for the whole family.

Cons

I could never figure out how much I was going to make and never saw a breakdown of commissions and expenses. Some managers have too much time for you and will text or phone you too often just to see what you're doing. There isn't enough time spent initially on product knowledge.

Advice to Management

Make sure your agents know what they are doing before you promote them. Streamline communications between underwriting and agents through email, especially on conversions and re-reinstatements. Train your support staff better so that answers are consistent.

    I worked at Western & Southern Life full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent training if you're new to the business. 7 week salary, then straight to commission. Health benefits after 30 days. 401(k) w/ match after a year, and pension plan after 5 years.

    Cons

    Behind in the times when it comes to technology. Some of the programs still look like they run in DOS. If you get a bad manager, you're done.

    Advice to Management

    Pay to get good managers. Then train them to sell and to manage people. A lot of the managers don't know what they are doing. Also, a lot of the managers are ignoring the quantum leap directive.

    I have been working at Western & Southern Life full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are great at sale, outgoing, and know a lot of people who knows a lot of, you can make a lot of money.

    Cons

    If you do not have a large personal network of people that are willing to help you generate clients in the beginning of your career, this might not be the best place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    They are very laid back and easy going.
