    Pros

    Great products in the lines of home and auto, good company name to back you up, and flexible hours.

    Cons

    No residual income for those making the sales. I don't know if that is for all locations, but the one I worked for had no residual income. People don't get into the insurance business with no salary just to constantly work day in and day out till they are spent. The new agent bonus was a joke, while training there was a $1000 a month income that was also tied to your production levels. If you are new to the profession and have no experience then how are you to produce to keep that tiny amount.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better structure in compensation to include residual income. This not only makes the agent happier, but also makes it worth their while to keep clients with the company rather than just letting them fall off the books in hopes that you can make a sale again to the person in the future.

  2. Great people, terrible rate increases constantly, lack of respect from senior management

    Cons

    Very tough to beat majority of the competitors in the market

    Pay more attention and listen to middle management concerns
