Great pay if you are producing. You definitely need to be a go getter or you will not be successful. If you can tell yourself what to do on a day to day basis you will make a lot of money.

Pros: Great Company, Staff & Management. I look forward to coming to work. Cons: Not enough room for growth, pay is very low compared to other companies.
Licensed Agent in New Orleans, LA

This company is product driven. If you become an agent prepare for the reality that you were sold on becoming one. Read your contract! There will be so much eager energy to get you on and get started, but the minute you slip that energy will shift. Hold your partners accountable! Their job is to help you. There is a LOT of "cannot dos" without authorization or approval even running your social media. Just be ready to have your creativity taken away from you.

Pick your partner wisely, they pitch it as a guaranteed base salary but it is 100% contingent on sales and performance, they discuss leads but even when you start to get them you get very very few. Yes there's an office but you have to pay for your own parking, and your office space. Basically, expect to get nickel and dimed, and you're going to have to call your entire warm market, ignore them for your first year. Plenty of opportunity to make money but go into it with at least 6 months of cash reserve saved up and the expectation that is going to be the hardest thing you've ever done for the first few years. Ignore them trying to make you get the 6 and just get your series 7
