    Pros

    Had lots of great ideas to develop the sales model

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Top Training & Career Advancement
    Promotion based on merit- performance- hard work- not seniority.
    Top paid commissions for agents
    Great system in place for anyone who wants a real career.
    4 company paid trips per year (you have to earn them of course) you can bring a guest at no cost. Top accommodations.

    Cons

    There is really none. Some people come into the company thinking everything will be handed down to them. You have to work hard. Really hard. Help a lot of people to succeed in this business. They do say “give us a year and we will give you a career.”

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Unilimited money potential. Money structure can be great. Team events. Fun atmosphere. Fun meeting new people and getting them insurance that can protect their paycheck. Your in a sense your own boss.

    Cons

    Chargebacks can whipe a big sale out since the company pays you the commission of the year upfront, if the client cancels in a few months, you still have to pay the commission back. No base salary so you have to be money management for the slower weeks. Takes a while to get really started. Long hours, which wasn’t a problem for me but can be for a lot of people. You drive a lot and there is no gas remburstment.

    Advice to Management

    Need more managers and a better help employees system. Not everyone is just born with sales experience or a sales gift.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Combined Insurance is a company that takes corporate social responsibility very seriously. From their employees to the clients they do as best as is possible.

    My background is corporate operation and business ownership. This position has enabled me to leverage my natural aptitudes in the best way possible.

    I am able to work hard, not become “the workhorse”, and earn very commission checks. All of this is made possible by helping people when they need it most. Combined has everyone’s best interest in mind.

    Cons

    You have to work hard, there is no in-between, or cutting corners.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to hire top talent and not cut corners by sending just anyone to sales school.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good sales class program.

    Cons

    Our morning sales meetings were at a McDonalds! First bad sign! Two years after I left, a collection company contacted me! Combined, never informed me that I had ever owed any back charges. Don’t waist your time ! If you are on government assistance, Combined cashes in on you! It costs me, out of pocket $5k to work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful to your new hires! Don’t waist their time. Promptly inform your agents of charge backs, don’t wait!
