    Pros

    Cafeteria on-site, friendly co-workers who genuinely like each other.

    No vision, no road map, everything changes every year and now we're back to where we were two years ago.

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

    Pros

    Commissions paid fairly quickly and some products can pay a large percentage

    Cons

    Almost no training at all. Leads are scarce, you have to call people who barely know you the company is, and there is no reimbursement whatsoever for expenses. You are completely self employed yet expected to react to management and upper management like an employee. Most of the sales agents lie about being independent agent (instead of captive) to get in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a real, paid, training program for your products. Help your new agents by providing small items like Office Supplies or Postage. Go to electronic submissions & provide company laptops or vehicles OR give a base salary for 6 months. It's a bad combo of poor product training + no time to learn on your own (you need to start selling right away to survive).
