There's pressure but a lot of your time can be spared, can work at the office and at home as well, you gain experience and skills and can be fun at times.

Productive and fun working environment

Avbob is good place for getting well along with colleagues and supervisors. Things get bad when there are no leads and supervisors call telemarketer lazy and unproductive. Whenever the company does bad, the blame is put on Frontline employees but when the company does good, the credits go to the management team only. I won't recommend this job to anybody unless if there is nothing to earn per month then one can stick around and afford putting bread on the table. Other than that there is growth and opportunities for growth.

Great

The best paying insurance company I know. But you need to work hard. Make sure that you are eager to learn from others and never let the lapses discourage you.

Productive

I don't have much to say regarding the time I served. I had lot of fun, I learned many things and meeting new people was quite adventurous in such a way that the other part of me grew.

It was very stressful as I did not get the correct assistance from my mentor.

In my experience they have a culture of there own. I was trained by an appointed mentor that trained me to do things a certain way, then my contact was canceled, you dont get a employee contact, your contact is of a nature that there is no employee relationship. Only 10% commission and yet you cover all running cost of company. This replies to funeral side of Avbob.

Pros

Only that is makes you look good, as a person doing the job.

Cons

The company does not have your back. On certain people get privileges.

Motivational and inspirational work place

The culture is exciting, management exceptional although I feel like they can or should introduce an allowance for their advisors and also engage more with the different stakeholders.

Pros

Recognising good work and extra effort

Cons

None

Your salary is in your hands meaning there's no commission and there's no limit you can bring as much clients as you like and if you didn't bring any client than you won't get paid.

Pros

No commission

Cons

Long hours
