      Pros

      Can make good commission, but need to work the minimum expectation of 10 hour days.

      Cons

      Cult like sales environment, Terrible management. I was a top rep, but was let go when I told them I was pregnant. So I sued them, and won! Selling Disability Insurance but then when UNUM should be paying valid claims, they make it so difficult for the claimant, to avoid paying anything, which is sad as these claimants became disabled, and are not well. So UNUM preys on that, to try to give up and drop their claim. Unethical claims department. Probably my worst selling experience, ever!
