Pros: meet people from all walks of life, great for improving your presentation skills
Cons: highly unorganized, poor training and unprofessional.
The reviews below are accurate. I came in to the company lured by the flexibility and independence to grow my own business and one day after 10 years of service receive renewals (like a bonus percentage) from my book of business. If you are single or need a start, it's a one way into the insurance hustle. There were people from all walks of life grabbing at a the chance to improve their situation. If you are a single mother, you will have little off time to enjoy your children and will be hounded constantly by high-pressure managers to perform plus get leads that aren't worth the paper. Training managers were late and training itself was a nightmare at the field office. At the corporate Lombard office, the trainers were very good. Those making money either have a wide referral base or are established and payed their dues at great personal expense and time. With under two months in, I cut my losses. Found a great job paying.
