    I worked at Combined Insurance (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My Team...hands down. They were my only support system and made coming to work every day bearable .
    Vacation Policy.
    Work from Home Options.
    Gym on-site (Discounted Rate).
    Easy Location to commute to.

    Cons

    Director Level Manager does not invest time for professional development and lateral or vertical movement. Delegates tasks to others on the team without taking any initiative to complete them his/herself. For an Early Careers Professional, the department is very transactional and always works to the "next Monday" which provides extensive long hours and weekend work in order to achieve business needs.

    The company as a whole is a big boys club, and lacks diversity of thought. Extremely traditional mindsets which include dress code, pay, and availability after hours. (work life balance is not a priority, even on vacation you need to be able to access email and phone.)

    During the duration of my employment I had three direct managers, which eludes to the high turnover in the business as a whole. As an Early Careers Professional, this company lacks initiative and growth in order to attract this demographic and retain them in both corporate and sales environments. Especially from a competitive compensation, this company pays on the low end of the range.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they voice concerns about direct and upper management. When over 5+ employees voice these concerns, it should be warranted to investigate the issues. Especially when almost the entire team turns over within 9 months.
    Provide transparent development.
    Do not string a long employees, be up front and transparent with them.
    Better Work Life Balance.
    Better Compensation.

    Pros

    Combined has a great culture and people who have been there for many years. It's a comfortable place to grow your career. The employees are friendly and welcoming. Lots of older workers mixed in with newer employees.

    Cons

    Some cliques of long time workers. Behind on some technology but improving.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more engagement, and avoid pockets of favoritism
