Great company to work for. lots of product training and tools to be successful.
Life Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Rocky Mount, NCJanuary 7, 2016
My typical day started at the office around 8:30am.. checked messages, checked pending business.. made calls to home office to get life insurance policies issued or to see what needed to be done to get them issued. After the morning, I would be out in the field seeing clients and holding appointments to sell Life ins and annuities. would typically hold around 3-4 appointments each day.

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Covington, GAAugust 19, 2013
This company is going through transition, Changed comp plan 5 times in 6 years. Shrank agency force from 4000 agents to 1000 in last 6 to 7 years.It is sales but there is no valuable lead program.
Has very good products to market but tough staying with company after 9 months to a year,
Compensation plan has problems. Nearly zero turnover rate for service agent and about 80% turnover for sales . youd thnk that someone would figure out it is a compensation plan problem.
Pros
products
Cons
turnover problem and bad comp plan

flexible hours with little to no help from management
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VADecember 12, 2013
A typical day for an insurance agent is making sales calls or scheduling appointments through your book of business, personal acquaintance or phone book. Then drive out to make house visits. I learned a lot about insurance as well as investing, and it was great to share with others since most people do not typically know a lot when it comes to life insurance. The hardest part about being a life insurance agent is finding prospects to sell. Most people don't know they need it and wont take the time to meet with you or they want more than they can afford.
Pros
flexible hours and learning the business
Cons
little to no help from management, the first months are the hardest because your working 60 hours a week and not making minimum wage

Licensed Sales Agent/Insurance Advisor (Current Employee) –  Addison, TXMarch 26, 2013
AGLA (Division of AIG) is a Top Performer with its Insurance, Annuity, Health, and Disability Products. Nothing comes close to what AGLA has to offer and the way the company pays its claims. This is an amazing company to work for and each and every individual is always willing to 'roll their sleeves' up and help one and another. Training is always available, management is always available, and the company is focused on presenting some of the finest in products available on the market.
Pros
the pros are that you have everything at your fingertips for which to learn and become productive, failure is not an option!, there is no reason to fail with this company.
