    I have been working at IPA Family as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They provide leads, conduct weekly sales meetings, have an online training platform and support agents in the field. The company has adapted to changes in the industry by providing relevant products to sell and earn a living with.

    Cons

    This opportunity isn't for everyone. You must be able to market yourself and work with very little supervision, since you are a contract employee. It is similar to being self-employed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing new products to create new revenue streams!

    I have been working at IPA Family (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You're treated like family.

    Cons

    You get VERY FEW leads from the company, and it is difficult to get a hold of your mentor

    Advice to Management

    Give your agents more leads, and then they will be more successful!

    Pros

    Some confusion posted...Free leads for you to develop, they are not preset appointments. If you are not intelligent--don't go... you will have access to products to serve the Senior Market, Small Business Market, and Individual Market. If you want to do Medicare, Final Expense, Life Insurance, Health Insurance, Supplemental, Disability Insurance, Annuities, and Ancillary Benefits....This is the place. If you are tired of being a life agent, and someone wants you to help their Brother with a Medicare Supplement and you refer that income away. Then this is the place for you. We really do it all--except P&C.

    Cons

    You are accountable to yourself. If you have to punch a clock or have to be pushed to get motivated....forget it--You are your own boss. Would you fire you???

    Most people need to focus on 15-20 products and add as they need them, rather than trying to ingest everything at once.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making us relevant in the marketplace by continuously adding products with quality companies that protect our clients better than they ever have been protected before.

    Pros

    No pros they honestly have no idea what their doing and they promise you promotion and take money behind your back. Faith Based is not what this place is its hard to even have faith in the company

    Cons

    Everyone will lie to you, make you feel great, under pay you, steal and over work you to the point of insanity

    Advice to Management

    Quite using the best employees for their better skills as R&D just because you can't produce and have no future

    Pros

    Pros really there is none what so ever!

    Cons

    Great for anyone who has never held a real job and if your under the age of 21. Someone who does not mind dealing with a management staff that breaks ever employer law that has ever written. Or an Attorney who wants to make a quick buck! If you never want to be paid what you are worth and if you like a high school mentality. CFO is going through a mid life crisis - hence the young chicks.

    Advice to Management

    Please get an entire new management team to run the place!

    I have been working at IPA Family full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance with opportunities to be your own boss. I have been with IPA Family for a short time, but I enjoy the work environment and see company growth happening all around. The sales agent recruiting process appeared strange at first, but now I understand the process/method and hear the improvements they intend to make going forward. Ideas and improvements are always the talk of management ... they really do strive for the best and take everyone along for the ride. I feel comfortable sharing my ideas and personal career goals with the team and management.

    Cons

    IPA Family has grown fast, so there are a lot of initiatives on the horizon to accommodate the growth. That means change and adjustments to routine, which can be exciting and difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum!

    Pros

    This company offers so many products for you to decide on healthcare. Health, Dental, Vision, Life also Pet insurance. Amazing policies with great coverage for all your needs. Weekly webinars are great with staying on track with up to date info in the field.

    Cons

    Only one so far is the weekly Monday meeting that isn't always so convenient to make it physically to the office. If there could be a Skype group session for the meeting since so many advisors are from various areas that would increase the participation in my opinion.
