    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.

    Cons

    If you are lazy this is not the right company for you. Sorry to be blunt but the reality is when given the freedom of time there are those that realize it's an opportunity to do something great and change their financial future and those that don't. Those that do build a career where when they take time off it is well earned and they continue to get paid while off because they put in the hard work when they weren't off....

    Pros

    There are none they rely on a antiquated business model. Face to Face appointments driving everywhere Not a technology based company so far behind the times.

    Cons

    Too many to list

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional leaders. I went out on a so called field training in Palm Beach county. All my trainer talked about was how many men she was dating which was really off putting. She made a lot of promises which she eventually broke. The appointments ended up being 1 and an existing client which she bullied into up selling "She told me if you get a call from home office tell them that i trained you from 9-4" Wow my...

  10. "Stressful, low pay"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Claims Adjuster in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Co-workers helping each other succeed

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations regarding claims processing time considering extreme workload and lack of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Additional employees are needed with better training. Take a good look at how you are managing your claims department. Employees are leaving at an alarming rate!
