If you are new to the industry, Guardian, New York Life and Mass Mutual have the best training. You are responsible for your own success and can be very rewarding. Just know what you are getting into.


I have no experience with Guardian, but I've been with Liberty National for almost 7 years and I find their compensation package to be very strong. I feel agent support and training are excellent. Of course, any company's environment can shift with local agency leadership.

I'm a new adjuster but have great metrics and feel I'm doing fairly well. My family is struggling living paycheck to paycheck. I've been with my company about 7 months but I feel other companies pay more. I don't want to leave though. Any tips for asking for a salary increase? I was promoted a few months in to a tier 2 but no pay raise goes with that.

Thanks for any advice.. I'm at 47k a year. I wanted to go SIU but obviously there is no immediate significant pay bump. Ultimately aiming for 60k

There’s no such thing as a perfect job.

I know there are definitely worse out there so it’s hard to put my foot down and resign, I could just stick it out for a year but am feeling demotivated and too exhausted to do anything else but sleep after hours/weekends. Have you ever started working somewhere and although nothing overtly wrong or terrible about the place / colleagues, it just didn’t feel like the right fit & if so, what did you do?

P&C focused people: What do you do to find success cross-selling life policies? I mostly sell P&C off internet leads.

I do okay but not great with life after having the client for six months once I move them into a preferred policy. That move saves them enough to make life doable coupled with established trust. I’ve been told just to quote the auto and life together initially but it feels “off” to me.
