    Pros

    I like that I have flexibility in my schedule. I love the fact that Liberty National is building leaders and doesn't hold you back when you are trying to reach your goals.

    Cons

    While there is always some cons when having a commission based career the fault does not fall completely on the company it usually a break down in the system.

    Advice to Management

    The management team has been amazing. Building to grow and develop future leaders. I appreciate that they are always looking for ways to improve on the processes they have in place.

    Pros

    Ability to move far beyond your dreams. People who I work with are very motivating. Great team.

    Cons

    One of the good and bad of working at Liberty National is commission only. Work hard and its good, but you must be motivated to grow independently.

    I worked at Liberty National Life (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Uncapped commission, you can make your own schedule. Sounds like they had good benefits including medical, 401k, etc. You work when you want to work.

    Cons

    A big con is that it's only commission based. So what you earn depends on how much work you want to put in. Could be a good thing or bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent.

    Pros

    There aren't many I can think of

    Cons

    I worked for this company for 2 years, and feel it was the biggest waste of my time. They misrepresent the opportunity before you, say you are the owner of your own agency het micro-manage your time. They'll screw you over on your commissions, all in favor of the favorite people. Run, run, run away

    Advice to Management

    Protect your hard working employees do what you say you'll do, cut down on the hype.

    I worked at Liberty National Life full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule (for the most part).
    - Can make money (eventually).
    - No experience necessary.
    - If you don't have to have a steady pay check then it's a good opportunity, just don't work for the Memphis-Lynnfield location because you will be stressed out, in debt or would have ran through your savings when you leave; they act like they have you on payroll, when they don't.
    - LNL is a good company overall, with a lot of cool reps, but I should have listened to the review on here about the overall sales rep. positions because they tried to warn me, but I got wrapped in a the lies.
    - They will train you and allow you to use their printer and office equipment at no charge

    Cons

    - They are liars, from start to finish, so please, don't fall for it, like I did or you will see for yourself want I'm talking about when you start.
    - Its a whole lot of work with Little to No pay most weeks. You may have to travel to other towns to make a few bucks, but it's usually only enough to cover gas and food, or pay on a bill.
    - They force you to recruit, train others, and come into the office but don't pay you anything.
    - You must attend insurance class and get your insurance license and background check all at your own expense (not unusual) but there are some companies who will pay you get become licensed and also offer base salaries but not this one.
    - Only a few people have success working as a sales rep because those few people take your leads when you leave and that's how they get paid, by sticking around while they wait for their leads/clients to come through and it's door to door (they're going to try to convince you that's it's not, but trust me, it is) and when they say they have leads, it's a lie...the only real leads/ clients are the ones you go out and get yourself, which probably won't be valuable to you until months or years later (and I'm not kidding).

    Advice to Management

    - Stop being so overwhelming with the calls and texts.
    - Stop lying to people and making them quit their jobs when you know that money doesn't come so easily in this business.
    - Allow people to work other jobs and sell insurance on the side, if they choose to because you all know that you are not going to pay them anything, if they don't go out and make $ for themselves.
    - Just be honest with people and allow them to use their better judgement because the opportunity may be for them but then it may not be.
    - Other than that, keep training and assisting others when they need it.
    - Lastly, stop talking about agents and clients behind their backs because nobody want to hear that mess everyday.
