    I worked at HealthMarkets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    pretty good with setting up agent website. most people are pretty nice.

    Cons

    you learn on your own, you get the internet to teach you, hardly any help from above, then when I left, found out they would not release my license for 6 months, so you are screwed if you want to work in the business.

    I have been working at HealthMarkets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Its a good company. They help you get up and running although its a little rough with 100% commission. Follow the process and it will work.

    Cons

    Incentives and Bonuses are really little. Leaders act like they are giving you thousands of dollars when it is barely a $1000 to encourage to sell . Its just extra money. Leaders varies from leader to leader. Some are better than others and will spend the time with their agents. Management is a little weird. Old school and all male leaders.

    Pros

    Starting out independent is not easy if you want to establish yourself in a competitive for yourself. There is business it's a matter of finding it and knowing what you are talking about. Yes, they push their own SureBridge products. Some of those products make sense depending on the clients needs, values and budget. More people become bankrupt due to medical costs and not enough insurance.

    Cons

    Not enough product training. Dislike the rah rah meetings. Make them shorter.
