    Pros

    The benefits and educational opportunities

    Cons

    The management, the pay, and the lack of caring for the agent

    Advice to Management

    Hire better managers. This company is about PMA and getting out there. You cant do that with mentally abusive managers.

    Pros

    So far so good. I have just completed my 3rd day of training. So I'm writing this review from my hotel. I am very excited about this new opportunity. I have read some of the reviews on here some negative some positive but I am never going to allow my self to be discouraged by someone else's failure. I will say that this training is intense but I know its going to pay off and I look forward to doing another review...

    They throw a lot at you in a short time. You have to stay on your toes and memorize a lot of information but you know the old saying no pain no gain.

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

    Pros

    NONE none at all. One week in Chicago that is "All expenses paid!" where they work you so hard that you have to stay up until 2 am studying to keep up. My poor fellow duped employees were the only positive thing about the trip.

    Cons

    Nothing this company told me when I was hired was true. I would not be trained in my home town, instead while I was in Chicago I was told that as soon as I got home I would be trained somewhere 3 hours from my home... another week in a hotel. Then one week at home and I was pressured into driving three hours away AGAIN for a one day conference that was more like a cult meeting. EVERY morning you have to sign into a sales...

    I worked at Combined Insurance

    Pros

    I enjoyed the team spirit and the flexibility. I was in charge of my schedule which allowed me to never miss my kids’ events which was important as a single mom if two busy teens. Yes, it’s 100% commissions but if you work the system and actually go to work each day, the income will follow. You must be disciplined and organized in what you do. So many failed because they didn’t want to work each day or follow their systems....

    Cons

    100% commissioned so if you don’t have another source of income in the household, it can bet very stressful and scary.

    Advice to Management

    Give a base for at least two months. Give more opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    This is not a job you can sleep through. You need to work hard, especially when you first start. I have seen people reach exorbitant goals in only a few months, but they work hard to get there. You have to work smart to work less, and the hours are not always "while the kids are in school."

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! I love my career and you all are a big part of that!

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

    Pros

    Unlimited income...generous and attainable bonus structure...ability to build a residual income and career.....ability to help people when they need it most.

    Cons

    Commission based no can be a bit of a struggle if you don't produce. The leads that are generated from existing and lapsed clients are disorganized and lead to a lot of confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the lead process.....up date product lines to compete with the market Stop the parading of successful agents on a weekly basis....makes the culture of office appear more like a multi level marketing gig then a career. Work closer with the struggling agents to help them get through the first year
