    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time

    Pros

    Combined Insurance Australia and management team was really an employer of choice, extremely supportive management team.

    Cons

    It took around 6 months to feel really comfortable, however it does take time to develop specific skills required for this role.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Straight commission. There is no base salary but, I had to put something in the box in order for me to submit this review. There's tons of opportunity to make really great money in this business. The company has fantastic bonus money that you can earn rather easily, as long as you're following the sales success system. You have nearly full autonomy and you have the support of management, every step of the way. There's definitely room for advancement and the training is second to none. You get to sell supplemental benefits to individuals and business, unlike our competition....quack quack. Get it? Since they're leaving a lot of self-employed and 1099 people to fend for themselves, Combined Insurance is there to help! Bonuses can reach up to 3000.00 or more, per month and that's only the beginning! The possibilities are endless, pretty much!

    Cons

    The benefits structure needs to improve dramatically! Splitting the cost of benefits with the employees 50/50 just isn't going to get it done. Employees need to be valued at a much higher level than this. Employees are busting their back-sides to be successful and earn their living. The last thing we need to worry about is how we're going to pay our doctor or hospital bill, should the unexpected happen!!

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Worked at Combined for 2+ years. Only left due to personal health issues. My Market Director was extremely caring and understanding. My manager was always supportive and went on appointments with me whenever I needed help.

    Cons

    It's not an easy job but you get out of it what you put in. It's easy to blame the company and those in positions above you when you don't do well. It's harder to look at your own actions or lack of. I hope to return to Combined if my health allows.

    Advice to Management

    Those that care look around you there are some that don't belong in management. Do the right thing and take this out and you'll build a better team.
