    Pros

    Horace Mann provides all of the tools to grow a great agency along with a niche market for client acquisition. We're on the cusp of great things at Horace Mann--those with a winning nature and background will be able to leverage this far and beyond what a normal opportunity provides into a wonderful life. The more educator households we help, the more we help ourselves along with that local school community.

    Cons

    Someone said, our greatest strength is also our greatest weakness; so, at times our niche market will close our access to our educator household--which requires re-building trust and access all over again.

    Advice to Management

    understand our processes and support our expansion--especially promote and support the agencies who are growing in the Horace Mann processes.

    "Territory Leader-State Director"

    I have been working at Horace Mann full-time

    Pros

    Positive culture with a bright future. Top management open to new ideas. Hearts are in serving educators. The preferred company for school employees.

    Cons

    A company that goes beyond selling to help their clients. The challenge is that Horace Mann can sometimes be grouped in to the same category of their competitors....viewed by teachers that retirement providers are just there to take their money. Easy objection Horace Mann reps overcome by proving with their quality partnership actions.

    Pros

    Great company that caters to Educators, solid Field Leadership team assists Agents throughout career.

    Cons

    I guess if I did have to pick a con, it would be the irregular hours. Due to working with Educators, sometimes a late evening appointment is necessary. Not a terrible thing, however that is all I could think of as far as cons go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Horace Mann full-time

    Pros

    Horace Mann is a place where all employees truly care about the other people they work with, and most important they care about supporting the company mission of taking care of America's Educators.

    Cons

    Because Horace Mann is a smaller company, there are places where our brand is unknown. That can quickly be overcome by successful agents in territories.

    I have been working at Horace Mann full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great place to build a career! If waking up in the morning and knowing that your potential earnings are only limited by how hard you are willing to work, this is the career for you! I was an agent for several years before leaving HM for another financial services company. I soon came back for the support, the products, the vision, the niche market, and the "Horace Mann Family."

    Cons

    This is not really a "con" but this company is best suited to individuals who are self-motivated and looking to build a dynamic financial services practice.

    Add 20% to liability adjuster staffing level to make work loads manageable, reduce turnover, and increase customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    I have worked for Horace Mann since I was a freshman in college. This company truly makes you feel like you are part of a family. Having a niche market and the partnerships in place that Horace Mann has created provide a significant amount of credibility when doing your job and make it a place where you enjoy what you do every day!

    Cons

    I don't have any cons right now.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. You're absolutely correct - agents won't succeed unless they possess a superior internal drive!

    Pros

    Horace Mann provides exceptional support and training for new agents. The culture of Horace Mann truly cares for the educators it serves.

    Cons

    The business model is so effective that it quickly becomes impossible to accomplish all one wants in any given day. Time to expand the office!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to rotate various field leaders among new agents for shadowing and support.
