I've been an independent producer in NY for 10 years. The general agency I work with are family friends so frankly I've never questioned compensation. For the most part I'm getting paid between 45-55% on the term. I see much higher numbers bounced around here. They're a big help to me as far as last minute illustrations some other sales back-up stuff. However there also very proprietary on illustrative software. Is that reasonable compensation? Like I said I seem to see higher numbers here but perhaps I'm looking at it wrong? Any help with this I would appreciate.
