    Pros

    Management expresses genuine interest in your success. It's a great work environment and an excellent opportunity to learn from some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    For me, the location was the biggest challenge. I spent most of my time-off travelling to see family. If I could have this job closer to home, I probably would have stayed forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become increasingly open to the idea of remote working opportunities.

    $24k Base Salary plus very good commissions
    Excellent Training for new agents
    HIgh quality sales leads provided by company

    Medicare sales peak from October thru early December, very high work load
    Intimidating emphasis on detailed compliance requirements
    Non Medicare insurance products are less than stellar

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compliance oversight should focus on truly abusive practices
    Training requirements and compliance enforcement for Non-Humana sales agents should be brought into line with standards for Humana employed agents

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Irving, TX (US)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the position because I enjoy meeting people. This position gave me the opportunity to enjoy a diverse group of employees. Also, the benefits were great. I was a fill in for the Executive Admin.Assistant to the CEO when she was on vacation, etc. I learned a great deal about the insurance industry and in particular about the Behavioral Health insurance industry.

    Cons

    When I began to work for them as a temp in July 2007, we were a small group. In 2008 I was hired as a direct employee and Humana bought out our small company called CorpHealth. Many changes occurred including moving our office from downtown Fort Worth to Las Colinas. It was a very long drive for me because I lived in Cleburne. But I still wanted to keep that job, so I drove over one hour each way daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Of course there were a lot of management changes, as there will anytime a major industry occurs. Many of our top VIP retired early. Also, Humana's main office is in St. Louis KY. A great many job were consolidated and sent there. But I believe change can be good, at least it was in this case.

    Pros

    Great place to work, great support staff. Base salary with endless commission, it is - what you made of it.

    Cons

    When the new Medicare rules came around, it shortened the Medicare Advantage selling season. You were left to sell every other Insurance product under the sun.

    Promotions and bonuses are always nice, or a gas card
