    I have been working at TWG Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Goosehead, is being able to help other people find solutions with their insurance. An added bonus is you're surrounded with a great family of liked minded people. Since the day I started, I have felt more than welcomed in the office, and building relationships with my superiors and mentors is a huge Pro. More importantly, having coaches available to my everyday process. This is only setting...

    Cons

    The only Con is there is a lot to distinguish through the carriers. But rather than con, it's more of an educational process. It comes with time. Everything about Goosehead is tremendous and World Class.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management, is to keep doing what you're doing. Goosehead get's better and better, day by day.

      I have been working at TWG Insurance full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - Fairly young company, a lot of hires directly from college so it is a really good environment if you are in the 21-35 age bracket. - As a quickly growing company (fastest growing independent insurance agency in the US) there is and will continue to be A LOT of room for advancement. - The company does a good job of setting up extra-curricular events and rec league teams for the employees to enjoy. Dodgeball,...

      Cons

      - Training can be arduous and a lot is expected of you. - Like any sales position, it is very stressful (especially when you are behind) and can sometimes become overwhelming if you are not good at managing your stress. - Especially early on, you will be putting in a lot more than 40 hours a week. But in this job, the more you work the more money you can make and the faster you will advance so if you are willing...

      Advice to Management

      Take better care of the service team as they are what keeps the machine well-oiled and running smoothly. They may not bring in the money, but they keep it here.

      I worked at TWG Insurance full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Culture was great, everyone there was super nice and always willing to help. During training, they throw a ton of information at you but they really want you to understand and help you in any way to learn the industry. Once on the floor, when you need help or have any questions everyone there is always willing to help. They also try to have events set up for the employees to get to know everyone better which is always...

      Cons

      You basically work in a glorified call center, so you are constantly getting phone calls. When someone is missing from work you can tell because of how many calls are on hold. They hire a lot of college grads that do not realize how little they are getting paid, and it settles in more when you are getting paid the same as someone that doesn't have a degree, which then gets you thinking as to why you even went to college....

      I worked at TWG Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      -You will meet some nice people here -The company does do fun events from time to time such as dodge-ball tournaments, BBQ, fancy holiday party -Office space is nice and breakfast was provided every week -Some people have flexible schedules where they are out of the office more and able to set their own schedule -Sometimes during hot periods the company will let you wear shorts or have theme days -Casual...

      Cons

      -Compensation is ridiculous- the company hired a lot of people right out of college who don't realize how little they are making and killing themselves to do so -Long hours expected- they have a set schedule of hours 8-6 M-Th and 8-5 F. However, if you are there at 8 and not before its frowned upon. If you leave on time, its frowned upon. And lunch had better be 1 hour on the dot. There is no flexibility for 99% of...

      Advice to Management

      Care more about your employees and manage turnover. There's a reason so many people come and go- and a lot of it has to do with the company culture and lack of respect for the employees.

      I have been working at TWG Insurance part-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Like other insurance agencies, if you put in the work up front (the first three years or so), you get paid big dividends every year after. You can definitely make a lot of money within a few years and set yourself up for a cushy paycheck in the long-term. Also, you get the feel of managing your own clientele, which helps you build autonomy in your job as you progress in your career. The industry and this firm are very...

      Cons

      Even in interviews, you are informed about how tough it is mentally to do well in this job. The learning curve coupled with the small paycheck at the beginning plus long hours don't add up to be worth it for a lot of people. If you have a vision of your priorities, stick to it through the ups and downs and you'll fare better.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to the newer employees on the ground level, the ones who have been here 6 months to a year. They have a perspective that upper management and long-term employees don't and it's an important one.

      I have been working at TWG Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      TWG is a relatively young company, since we've been around for only 10 years. This offers you the unique opportunity to grow your career with a company that is growing with you. Most managers have been promoted from within, so as the company grows that provides more opportunities to advance your position. The pay structure and compensation is excellent. First year agents have base plus commission and the next year...

      Cons

      The job can be hard work and you will put in a lot of hours your first year, but I don't think that is outside of the norm, since that will be the case just about anywhere you go.

      Advice to Management

      Keep it up. I love this company and I see myself building my career with TWG.

      I have been working at TWG Insurance full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      TWG offers a chance for employees to make an immediate impact in the company. Management is open to new ideas and input from all levels of employees. Competitive pay and benefits. Fun work environment, including extracurricular activities once or more each week.

      Cons

      Not necessarily a con, but you will be pushed hard. Longer hours than some other jobs, but nobody successful works 40 hrs/week.

      Advice to Management

      Never stop innovating and looking for ways to improve.
