    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    At Combined Insurance, there are many pros. From helping clients out in their moment of need to being able to have a flexible work schedule. The pay is great. In your first 26 weeks, you get weekly bonuses. You also receive monthly bonuses as well as quarterly bonuses when you reach a certain level in the company.

    Cons

    Even the days you are not working, you're working because you have to cater to your clients and their questions/claims

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Freedom to work on your own time Compensation is capable of being very lucrative

    Cons

    Zero guaranteed income Many unpaid mandatory meetings No fuel reimbursement Mandatory unpaid "Sales School" does not adequately prepare you for real world selling Management's pay is based on your performance, they may become very pushy if numbers are not where they would like

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the Chicago training manual. it currently does not reflect real-world conditions and is not effective in the field. Be more proactive in getting agents off the lead list and teach them how to create new opportunities.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can make a ton of money if you want to be a workaholic

    Cons

    Culture is false. It’s survival of the fittest with no support

    Advice to Management

    Try being an agent for a day. The upper management has lost touch.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good training. Good marketing materials.

    Cons

    After separating they want to charge me for benefits received. They also charge you taxes for company trips.

    Advice to Management

    Make products more competitive with the market. Products are overpriced.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The workplace environment is amazing with the pma Philosophy( positive mental attitude) I am in charge of my schedule and income. They train at all levels after 13 yes I still get great training and support from my management team.

    Cons

    This is sales!!! If you can't handle that this is not the career path for you. Most people that have many cons about combined just couldn't do it and rather than admit it blame this great organization. This company has given my family a new life. I make such figures and have secured financial freedom.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Ongoing training, daily meetings - PMA - colleagues are nice. Incentive trips. 401K

    Cons

    Many promises of $100K, realistically the 55% commission is broken down to as low as 20% after you sell. The company keeps 80%. High turn-over, revolving door. If you have a license, your Hired! A lot of family members are hired, therefore expect to receive leads 60 miles away or more.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and honest with salary expectations.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. But that’s a double edged sword.

    Cons

    Now I am not like the other ppl on here. I was successful at Combined. I went on all the incentive trips. Submit a minimum of $22,500 in sales for a weekend getaway to wherever the company is taking you for that specific promotion. They treated us like Kings and Queens. They spared no expense with hotels and food and they even give us $300 to spend for the weekend. But with all of that I still never made enough money...

    Be more upfront. Explain disclosures and let people know the potential downfalls if they need to leave this job

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company if you’re excellent in sales.

    Cons

    Racism Favoritism Bullying Tough Intimidating Use your own vehicle, gas, meals etc. All my district Manager cared about was hitting initial numbers and you were on your own from there. They’ll sell you hopes and dreams and dig the ground below your feet. They’ll sell you this positivity BS which means nothing after sales school especially if you’re in the Long Island market

    Advice to Management

    Don’t give false hopes and dreams.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for 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

    This is by far the best thing that has ever been presented to me! To start the amount of support this organization gives you is incredible and take it from a guy who has been in sales for 6 years and I was selling cars. Also take it from a guy who grew up in a bad area and very poor so I did not come from money and am self made and this company helped me get where I am today. This company is based on positivity PMA to...
