    Everyone is great to work with, very nice and helpful in all aspects. Incredibly welcoming. They have a cafeteria with cheap, delicious food. There are a plethora of benefits with working here.

    Pros

    - Start with a Book of Business. The company sets you up to succeed by providing training, a subsidy, and in most cases you take over a client base.
    - You are able to make decisions as you'd like to grow your business. You are the agency owner.
    - Company of Integrity

    - File as a 1099
    - It can be a pro, but you do everything, from marketing to selling and servicing.
