I worked at Bankers Life & Casualty as a contractor (less than an 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.

    Pros

    Training is awesome
     Acknowledgement of successors

    Cons

    Upper management don't practice what they preach since I was middle management I saw a lot of things on the inside that weren't what i call fair or ethical. Open door policy, "not."
    To much micromanagement

    I worked at Bankers Life & Casualty full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As this was my first experience with insurance sales, I spent my first week in Banker's training school that gave me a good overall of what they expected of an new agent and how to reach those goals. They paired me with a well qualified field trainer who was very pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    The office was a 2 hour drive from my house, in which I was expected to be in the office 2-1/2 days a week, though my actual sales territory was in the area where I lived. Training period was too short for people with no or little sales experience. Commission based pay only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did like the gas cards, lunches, and other perks given as incentives for achieving sales goals.
