    I worked at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There really are not any pros to working at this company. There is no support from management

    Cons

    No support from management, poor product training. No base salary, no gas reimbursement, your on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better support to agents in the field. Provide direction.

    I have been working at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Love the flexibility of the job. It allowed you to be a full time mom and work.

    Cons

    Depends on the market you can either really be successful or not / also management makes a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Base salary to help with starting agents or who have transferred to a different district would be helpful.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Nothing Positive you are expected to do 100% of your own prospecting with little or no assistance

    Cons

    Training is all on your own. Everyone acts like they want you to succeed-but al few sales reps take all the big accounts-and do all the enrollments themselves(even if it takes over a week).

    Advice to Management

    Better Training-do not make all reps 1099 employees. Poor Compensation Package

    I have been working at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Free leads. Great people to work with. Great training. Unlimited income potential. Much better to work for than AFLAC. The office I work at in Irving, Texas is all run by people that started as sales staff so they can relate to a new salesperson's challenges. Mostly 9a-5p hours and they are a non captive agency so if you are a Broker you are allowed to cross sale a mix of products and do what is best for your clients.

    Cons

    Like most Insurance sales, commission only.

    Advice to Management

    They seem to be doing a great job. Keep doing what you are doing.
