    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. The best part of working for Combined is the opportunity to advance in the company based on your own merit not seniority. Having the opportunity to help change peoples lives for the better on a day to day basis is truly a blessing. The employees you work with and develop and policyholders you can help provide security and peace of mind to is just amazing. The compensation program and benefit program employees recieve is highlighted by an amazing company matching 401k, Basic Retirement Plan and a Stock Purchase Program with a 15% discount.

    Cons

    The insurance business is a high calling and it is not for everyone. You have to understand in many cases you are communicating with policyholders in their darkest hour (death, injury or illness) these times are very emotional. Therefore a successful insurance professional has to be willing to work long hours in order to be there for their policyholders in time of need. You must also be willing to practice emotional intelligence as you will be working with different types of life events your policyholders are experiencing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have forward thinking and introduce new products to help our policyholders achieve a greater peace of mind.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unique products that give an edge in the market place

    Cons

    Way too much to list. One of the worst corporate staffs i've ever had the displeasure of working with. Unorganized and money hungry. The company works on favourtism rather than equality. They are terrible at paying claims and have one of the least friendly customer support staff i've ever seen. I've lost many clients just due to the last two reasons. Don't waste your time with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to Manage. Not just dictate. Treat people better, stop playing with a scarcity mentality and start helping people achieve their goals. Everyone is just in it for themselves.
