  • “[Protective is] a great company that will show you that being a decent person and doing good in the world are not incompatible with working for a large multi-national corporation.”


    “The structure of the program provided a safe place to experience and learn about the company while providing a lot of fantastic exposure to high level executives.”


    “Be prepared to be put in real world scenarios with real world issues. You are not treated as a student here, so do not look at yourself as a student.”


    “The internship program here allows interns to interact with senior-level employees on a daily basis, which I thought was unique. It is rare for a company as large as Protective to have so many senior-level employees willing to help interns.”


    “The experience gained from working in a profound corporate setting such as Protective, allows you to grow and gives you the tools needed to succeed. While working hard, you won’t notice it at first, but you will have better integrity that helps construct the foundation upon which your professional career will be built.”


    “At Protective Life I wasn’t getting coffee and making copies, I was given real responsibilities and treated like any other employee.”
