    Pros

    Great training. Awesome bonus opportunities! Amazing promotion potential. I have worked here 10 months and i have already been promoted 3 times and have received 4 separate raises. As long as you do what you need to do you will have no problem doing the same.

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons about working for the company except that the parking sucks.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management either.

    Pros

    Great co workers, loved the sales environment, everyday is a new challenge and you push through to succeed. If you like sales this is for you.

    Cons

    Everyday there is a LOT of work to do. Its basically more work for less pay in comparison to other sales jobs, dont mind the work, however at times it may be excessive. If you cant keep up the chances of you getting fired are high.

    Advice to Management

    Need better team work and overview of job growth. Better incentives are needed for higher workload.

    Pros

    Great training, open door policy with management and regular games and incentives to encourage production. Fun place to work, but also big on integrity and honesty. I also like that as a company they are customer oriented.

    Cons

    SUPER HIGH WORKLOAD!!!!! Also tight with a dollar...but that's how they keep rates low. However we felt pressured to work overtime regularly and there was NO overtime pay!

    Advice to Management

    Hire Hire Hire so the WORKLOAD can be distributed evenly.

    Pros

    GREAT POSITIVE ATMOSPHERE......THE PAY IS GOOD....AND PROFIT SHARING BONUS.
    - Only works best if you live in LAKELAND.
    - Pay for your licencing and paid training.

    Cons

    They do give you high workload and high expectations.
    - They pay less than other insurance companies and more work.
    - you can get managers that help you and some can hurt your chances of promoting.
    - Don't Miss Work have to be above 90% in dependability or they will work at terminating you.

    Advice to Management

    Get a back Bone!!! They wont fight for the team.

    Pros

    Great support and management. Train you on everything and pay for your licensing. Work really hard to get you to succeed and promoted.

    Cons

    Busy call center atmosphere. You get 17-18 calls monitored monthly and if you miss 2 then you are considered failing. Calls harshly monitored, you can fail an entire call for the slightest thing.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all trainers have the same, correct information. Calibrate more often, especially with updates/changes
