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

    Pros

    Ratings, Customers, Ratings, Customers and Ratings

    Cons

    Corporate Management is by far the most micro management group in this industry. They smother their field and do not support local Management. They will not attract good talent with their New Agent program.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the career people you had or perish! Your done without the right talent in the field!
