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

    Pros

    I really didn't know what to expect when I started. I had some concerns about the 1099 role and all that comes with it. I have been working here at the Lakewood Ranch office for a little over a month. The support and training from the leadership group has been fantastic. I don't know exactly how other groups work but Justin Reynolds and his leadership team go out of their way to help me succeed. I have hit my first...

    Cons

    This position requires you to get out of your comfort zone often. If you are willing to work diligently goals can be met.

    I have been working at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay! If you work hard you’ll be great money. They truly care about their employees and clients. It’s a fun, friendly place to work.

    No cons for the OKC office but I’m sure every office is slightly different depending on people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging your people and setting the standard.

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

    Pros

    Very lenient and casual. Usually on your own with no supervision.

    Cons

    Little to no training. You are basically making money for someone else who does nothing to help you. Very difficult product to sell.

    I worked at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is great for the recruiter position

    Cons

    Manager is a user and an abuser. She is paranoid of everyone to the point of creating situations that shouldn't exist. Before you know it you question everything you do. The moment you question or seem "disloyal" you are excommunicated and basically put on an island. Cutting all resources and even coaching staff to ignore you, not provide resources, etc. The culture tends to push the good people away so the environment...

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture of encouragement and teamwork. Build your people up instead of beating them down. Coach, teach and mentor your people instead of pushing them away.

    I worked at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Set your own hours, nice people you work with.

    Cons

    100% commission, low pay for a ton of work. Very little support for the division I was in (direct, small business) the money is with the brokers and it takes forever to get in with any of them. I signed one broker and he never gave me any leads, I gave him 6. Colonial just lost interest in supporting this division. It just isn't worth the effort I put in. No chance for advancement unless sales are thru the roof which...

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

    Pros

    It is a great company with excellent products to offer. I feel confident about selling the products because I have purchased them for myself in the past. My manager Maria Padilla is the best!! She has given me great support with my leads and is teaching me all I need to know to be successful. She is an excellent manager who really cares about me and wants me to be successful.

    Cons

    I have no cons so far.

      Pros

      When everything falls into place there can be some large payouts.

      Cons

      No real consistancy or structure. You are pretty much on your own.
