Highly Ethical Sales Organization with Growth Opportunity
Benefits Advisor (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 3, 2015
I have been in sales for over a decade and it's hard to find an ethical sales organization that actually does what they say they are going to do. Fortunately, AMBA has exceeded my expectations in this department.

Direct sales is not easy and it isn't for everyone, but AMBA has stood behind me and given me the tools I needed to become successful: Strong endorsement from the Texas Retired Teachers Association makes it easier to schedule sales appointments and close sales. The products are top notch: Long Term Care (Mutual of Omaha), Cancer/Heart Attack/Stroke coverage (Cigna) just to name a couple. These are huge companies with good reputations and retired teacher clients feel safe protecting their retirement with these companies.

The management team and culture in my Houston region is outstanding...a bunch of winners. Our Houston region has finished #1 out of 9 regions nationwide the past 3 years running. It's also nice to see (in a sales organization) that when they have a need to hire a new advisor in Houston they are very selective...

AMBA also provides first class training in the field for 6 weeks, free warm and hot retired teacher leads to call on, and outstanding VIP trips yearly with bonuses and incentives throughout the year. They know how to motivate me and make me feel appreciated!

Oh, and the compensation (with residual income for retirement) is excellent!
Pros
Unlimited Earning potential (no cap) plus residual income for retirement, weekly advances paid
Cons
No health benefits provided by company, Hard Work

Commission structure is not written for new reps
benefit advisor (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKMay 9, 2015
This company is endorsed by a local association and they have a great niche market; however, the reason they don't have local reps is because it's hard to keep them. The commission structure is not made for new reps to be successful only their managers. Their contract is also written where if you leave, you forfeit your upfront commission and residuals unless you can last for 3 years.
Pros
A local endorsement
Cons
Commission structure and the contract

Selling Supplement Insurance Products
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Katy, TexasJanuary 20, 2013
Created appointments with schools and city and state offices for the purposes of selling supplement insurance products. Learned how to set up in the teachers lounge and visit with the teachers to attract them for insurance appointments.
Management was very consistent at first but actually ended up scaring away 2 of my agents due to verbal abuse in front of others.
The hardest part of the job was driving 200 miles per day to my territory. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the clients and helping them fill their insurance needs.
Pros
fun weekly meetings
Cons
driving distances too far
