    Pros

    Brightway Insurance has a good business model. Plenty of carriers and opportunity for success.

    Cons

    Each agency it's independently owned. The agent owner I hired on with did not consistently or routinely pay commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional. Set your business up for success with a commitment to your sales team.

  3. Do your research of the company.

    Pros

    Brightway the actual corporation is amazing very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    The con is the actual location and who you are working with more training and less problems and less office turnovers and more communication is what is missing.

    Advice to Management

    Train the new agents and staff so they can be great at their job.

    Pros

    There are some good people in the corporate office that attempt to do the right things.

    Cons

    Company leadership lacks integrity and ethics. Franchisee "partners" are nickeled and dimed to death on ridiculous fees without proper reporting. Many lies are relayed (but not in writing) to attempt to convince potential franchisees to buy into the franchise. Communication is typically one -way and company leadership does not value open dialogue or tolerate questioning corporate decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Be ethical. Tell the truth. Stop lying to prospects. Invest in the success of your franchisee partners.

    Pros

    Customer Service Rep it is a great starter job if you wish to learn about insurance. There are some very nice people who work there. Chances are you'll make some lifelong friends.

    Cons

    New management promises a family atmosphere when actually it is far from it. They use fear and intimidation to control the employees who were there before them and if they don't submit they are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Your actions will catch up with you.

  7. Brightway Leadership is unethical and dishonest

    Pros

    Local. There are many good people that work at Brightway. If you are self-motivating, you can learn much about the Property and Casualty industry.

    Cons

    Compensation is low compared to the market. Leadership of the company is non-communicative, unethical and dishonest. Employees and franchisees are managed by intimidation. Relationships with Carrier partners is degrading rapidly because of senior leadership. New president does not conduct business honestly and with integrity. Attempts to manage employees and franchisees by fear, intimidation and threats.

  8. Great company to work for if you enjoy networking and taking care of business!

    Pros

    This job is not for lazy people. You have to ask for the sale and ask for referrals.

    Cons

    No company-paid health insurance if you work in a satellite office.

  9. Low pay, no benefits

    I have been working at Brightway Insurance

    Pros

    I get paid twice a month. I like my job and the folks.

    Cons

    Low pay when working at a Brightway Territory Owner's office. For an office that preached the importance of insurance all day to clients, the company offered no health, life, or disability plans to employees. With the new Obama Care plan in force, employees cannot afford to work there with no employee health benefits. It is a shame because I really love the folks and my job.

    Advice to Management

    Please, take care of your employees. You have many dedicated people that can no longer continue to work with low pay and no benefits. It gets hard to preach the importance of insurance when the employer does not think it is beneficial to offer insurance to employees.
