    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Bankers Life as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Once you have reached a point of licensure and given every success to building clients, this type of role can be very rewarding. There are hours of preparation for the State Board of Insurance testing, and additional knowledge needed to learn the insurance products you will represent, so this is the "roadwork" needed aside from maintaining hours of contact with potential clients.

    Cons

    You work for a commission salary. This is a very stressful position for those who depend on regular pay.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bankers Life full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Honest and supportive management. Culture of growth. They were very supportive, and understanding of new person's mistakes.

    Cons

    Commission only, no base salary. Lots of cold calling. Long work hours.

    Advice to Management

    At least a small base salary would be a great stress reliever for the first year or so.
