      Pros

      some pretty competitive benefits and good work life balance.

      Cons

      EVERYTHING revolves around getting the annual goals completed. There are arbitrary deadlines that must be met, and everything in the world stops if not on track to meet those deadlines. Financially motivated company. Majority of the company has been with IFB for their entire career, and because of this is very resistant to change. I experienced 6 years with a great boss, and 6 years under two bosses who drove me to only want to do enough to get by. I see a lot of leadership playing political games and advancing their own careers. I don't see a lot of leaders lifting their employees up and allowing them autonomy to be innovative and creative. A lot of controlling, micro managing behavior.

      Pros

      Great employees and family like atmosphere.

      Cons

      Numbers are shared with every employee in the company. Asked to join competitions you don't want to join. Quotas are high and you're eyed like a hawk if not obtaining them.

      A solid company

      Pros

      If you are looking for a place to start in the insurance sales industry then there are very few options out there that are better.

      Cons

      Very little (to almost no) room for growth outside of jumping accounts within the company. No ownership of business, no retirement, health insurance benefits are poor, and the company as a whole is a pressure cooker. This company is not a long term career to anyone looking to break out in the industry.
