    Pros

    They provide leads - expensive leads. You only get 50% of your commissions (the other 50% goes towards the money you owe for leads) and they take delivery charges out of the other 50%.

    Cons

    If you leave the company, run your leads immediately. Lincoln Heritage sends out an insurance agent who, if you sell any of the leads different insurance, they will call you a thief, belittle you to the client, badger the person into cancelling the policy you just wrote so they can attempt to make the sale. Copy your names before you quit, so you can work the list after you leave the company. You paid for the leads. You own them, not Lincoln Heritage. If you sign a contract, ask for ownership of the leads IN WRITING BEFORE YOU SIGN YOUR CONTRACT.
    Some guy named Al Umansky works out of Chicago, playing boss and collecting overrides, while also collecting Social Security.
    The company limits the amount of commissions you can earn on a deal - $800 is the maximum you can earn at one time. The remainder you have to wait until the 10th month to get paid the remaining amount of the commissions.
    They will mail you duplicate leads. You do NOT get refunds on leads that are duplicate. They will demand payment even if it's the exact same person. This happens many times over the course of the year.

    I have been working at Lincoln Heritage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The platform is superb. Getting paid the next day, getting leads, getting support from top executives down to fellow agents is unmatched anywhere most of us have been. You're like family. Follow the system, change your heart & mindset, and the money will follow you. A fourth or more of our agents make 6 figure incomes in their first or second year... that's $100k - $999k/year!

    Cons

    Like any sales position, rejection is a challenge, but part of the business.

    I worked at Lincoln Heritage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Product makes since for those who qualify, a life insurance with a family support service added on.

    Cons

    Some groups play favoritism with who gets the best leads. They do not support work life balance and want you to only work there and work every hour of the day for commision only sales.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should decide who gets which leads, not directors.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working here. They offer great quarterly benefits, great starting pay, and managers are always available.

    Cons

    Some of the managers play favorites and micro manage. Also, the reviews are done by your peers and affect your benefits so they're very biased.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting peers do reviews, stop paying favorites, and have faith in your employees to get work done. Micromanaging decreases employee morale.

    Pros

    Great product easy to sale. Great money maker if you work. Lots of free training.

    Cons

    You need a car...leads can be a couple of hours from home. Did not like the fact I couldn't do it part time when I first started. You must be all in or nothing. You must plan to work 30 to 50 hours week to make serious money. They only specialize in one product and nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to get more serious. Sometimes you have too much fun. Stop letting non productive ppl stick around and do nothing.

    Pros

    Lincoln Heritage is a VERY professional company that offers great support to agents. They are available to answers questions when you call in to the corporate office, and will email you information that is helpful regarding your clients or yourself.

    Cons

    If you're at an agency and your director offers little to no support, you loose the connection and could miss out on what this great company can offer you.

    Advice to Management

    If you've join a successful agency that teaches you the business and conducts quality training then you will thrive. (Troy Miles for an example& Judy Bradshaw) However, any agency will be successful as long as everyone stays focus and puts in the work.
