I am a Development Officer in Lic of India ,Chennai. My role is to recruit Candidates who can work as Insurance Consultants representing LIC of India -The central govt guaranteed financial institution .
Insurance Consultancy for women is a great opportunity to work with us to develop financially and become an entrepreneur with no investment. Most successful consultants country wide are women since they are so sincere and convincing to the customers.
LIC is a great organisation to work with. It is woman friendly.
Pros and cons
There is no gender distinction . Being a PSU , there are good number of holidays and leaves which would be of help to her. Unbiased promotions. Corrupt free organisation. Scope to learn is good. All facilities like mediclaim, housing loan , vehicle loan , LTC , leased accommodation/staff quarters etc.
If you are selected as an officer, be prepared to move to a different location on every promotion. ( could be close or a little far). You may have to stretch on some days depending on the requirements of the work. Should be prepared to accept PSU culture.
LIC is also famously known as Ladies Insurance Corporation, one of the most safe places for women to work.
Being a very big organisation, an individual who is a colleague/Boss may be a threat as any woman may face at any work place. So you should always set your priorities straight and if at any time feels somebody is trying to take advantage of her , speak out and reach out
