Good place to start... not much else
This isn't a bad place to get your feet wet in the insurance business. In my area, most people haven't heard of the company, so the pace is slow. There are a lot of training classes, but if you don't have an experienced agent to teach you in the field, you're screwed.
Most of the people you meet "in the field" really are "salt of the earth" people. I met some great people working there.
Upper management on the other hand could really care less, and it's obvious. They care about the bottom line, and their own pockets. They don't listen to the agents, while constantly saying "tell us what you need". They Lord this "great opportunity" over you constantly, while telling you that you suck. Again, good place to start. But I wouldn't stay there as a career agent.
Not that difficult to get a start in this company. Most agents are good people.
Upper management has lost touch with the field, and it's clearly all about money for them
