    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time

    Pros

    I was hired with Combined Insurance in 1995 as a agent with no experience in the insurance industry. I have now been employed with Combined Insurance for 22 years. Combined Insurance provided excellent training and a successfull selling system that allowed me to double my income the first year and earn more than I have with all previous employments. I was promoted to a sales manager position in my first 8 months. From there my career grew to District Management, regional management and divisional management. The opportunity has been life changing providing a fullfilling advancing career and has been a blessing financially to my family. I also have enjoyed the perks of outstanding company trips all over the world!

    Cons

    This is an opportunity that is only for people that are motivated to win, willing to work hard and stay committed. If thats a con?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make everyone aware of this winning career!

    I have been working at Combined Insurance as an intern (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing training and support (field and classroom)
    Great benefits package and free leads
    Amazing advancement opportunities (can happen in first 3-6 months)
    Great positive culture/environment (PMA!)
    Stability and security of the company (95 years old, A+ Rating)
    Great income opportunities for those with a good work ethic!

    Cons

    -For people who like a 9 am-5pm office position, this is not a good fit. It is mainly a field position and we are not 9-5. We control our schedule so we have flexibility.
    -For people who can't handle rejection, this is not a good fit. Sales in general wouldn't be a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work! Combined continues to grow and raise the bar. I couldn't be happier with the culture/environment. This opportunity changed my life! I can do more for my family now then I every imagined I could. I will retire here!

    Pros

    You get promoted based on performance and the company is focused on growing the management team. The compensation is extremely lucrative and the support and training is very well established.

    Cons

    Learning the system like any other career opportunity. There is a lot for a new professional to grasp with the products, system, training, and with learning the targeted area and industry.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Products are good and competitive

    Cons

    Out dated business model
    100% focus on hiring agents, they will hire anybody! No screening for realistic skills and competencies that would prove for a candidate’s opportunity for success or viability. Their “Manpower” (recruiting calls) are unbelievable showing that they just want bodies at sales school week after week. They don’t seem to care that there is no agent success! “Manpower Math,” give me a break!
    Many unqualified leaders who have never sold insurance
    No respect for the field agents from Divisional Staff Operations Team.
    Very poor culture
    Agents are nickel and dimed to death while they are starving and starting from scratch.
    No respect for their insured’s. Client confidential information is not safeguarded, its used as a “lead” and their confidential information floats around from agent to agent and is not secure.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck!!! Knowing what I know now, I am ashamed to have Combined on my resume. I have yet to find anyone who feels that their time at Combined was beneficial to their future in anyway, everyone I have had contact with feels completely embarrassed that they worked there.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very strong history of Principals from founder W. Clement Stone which should be basis for a successful organization.

    Cons

    W. Clement Stone would roll over in his grave were he to witness the Combined of today. Upper management is weakest leadership team I have witnessed in 30 years. Only interested in "yes" and very intimidated by innovative thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your field leaders getting it done in the trenches daily. Stop giving lip service to the concept of leadership and get in the field.

    Pros

    The people here are great. It's like an extended family. We are a 90+ year old company (providing stability) and we are continuing to grow. That's exciting.

    Cons

    This is a lean-operating company and because of this, there are times in which the quality of work being done is not as good as it could be if more resources (or time) we available.

    Advice to Management
