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

    Pros

    Great training on an ongoing basis. Cyclical training cycle keeps you sharp on the sales model. Advanced training provided to sharpen skills. Product training is good.

    Cons

    Not enough mentoring by senior producers. Compensation model doesn't match industry leaders and leaves new agents looking for coaching after initial qualification period.

    Advice to Management

    Improve field training allowance to allow agents to keep 100% commission on sales. Managers should be compensated sufficiently to allow them to focus on new agent development and not be spread too thin. Not enough managers/field training agents to cultivate new agent development.

    I have been working at Bankers Life as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Ethical managers and co-workers
    -Promotion and growth within company is encouraged and obtainable
    -Product training and sales training for new agents and established agents
    -Managment and corporate easy to reach and always ready to help and/or mentor
    -Commissions and incentives go above and beyond industry norms

    Cons

    -People not wanting commission jobs, people that don't understand agent/ self employment type positions, and people not selected to represent Bankers have given this 100+ year old company a bad name in online forums.
