      I worked at Colonial Penn Life Insurance full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Decent pay, decent benefits, if you get on a good team, it can be really fun to be around coworkers. The training is amazing. I walked in the door knowing nothing about insurance and I left with a PA life license which they paid for, free education on insurance, and an awesome addition to my resume. Good for a while to help you get the licensure and experience you need to find a permanent career elsewhere.

      Cons

      They say it's not cold calling, but let's be honest... The majority of the customers are NOT expecting to be called. Literally you will be making calls all day and all night and that's all they really care about. They are obsessed with calling customers. They even have this evil device called "the dialer" where it is automatic back to back calling...no breaks to even breathe between calls. Quality Assistance needs quality...

      Advice to Management

      Don't allow managers to send e-mails who don't know how to spell or use proper punctuation. The lack of basic intelligence and poor use of grammar by management is an embarrassment to the company.

      Pros

      They help you get your life insurance license.

      Cons

      They micromanage your time using some dubious productivity software system that they never share with you during training about how it works or doesnt work.

      Advice to Management

      Stop selling GBL products, the social security recipients are going to go for it less and less as this economy becomes more difficult.
