Worked in the (Southfield) Michigan office 5 years ago. The pros are you get an overall understanding of what it is to be an agent. You can prove to yourself that you might not be all that stupid if you can pass the insurance test! You didn't have to show up at a specific time everyday in an office. My immediate manager was excellent, the office manager not so much. Insphere is a brokerage so you get to represent name brand ( and noticeable) companies such as ING, United Healthcare and the like.
The negatives are constant in many insurance companies. Namely, it's commission-based and you can not secure clients. Also, the meetings we're not very helpful and even though they said they would train you well, the training was substandard at best. There's a great deal of wear and tear on your car and the money is definitely not what they were promising. My immediate manager was getting such low pay in her position she had to go back to being an agent. Even more horribly, you have to cold call very old leads and you are forced to pay for sub-par leads. They believe too heavily on the friends-and-family plan here and if your family is tiny and you don't have a lot of friends you probably don't have many appointments either. The charge offs can be very brutal and there are no bonuses.
After my experience with them for about 7 or 8 months I quit and swore I would never go back to insurance. Well, never say never I did go back and I work for another company in Michigan, The Hart agency. Much better in most things even though it is commission-based and you can't always count on clients being honest and truthful. If you join Insphere Insurance Solutions, use it as a learning experience and watch your charge offs if you're in the Detroit Michigan area look at the Hart agency American Income Life) instead.
