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

    Pros

    When you do well you are definitely recognized and the trips are great.

    Cons

    Your a hero one day and loser the day. Upper Management along the East Coast is ruthless. You are definitely micro manage. They expect you to go door to door six days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging, Stop all the conference calls. Support the staff.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance for more than a year

    Pros

    you are completely independent (and good luck is what you need to make money because it's 100% commission.

    Cons

    bad management, greedy, unprofessional, you will owe the company $5000 for your training if you don't sell enough to pay for your training. Training is NOT free. Deceiving.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people. You hire people make what money you can off them and then don't give a crap. Just keep hiring and getting rid of people. The wheel keeps turning. Be honest to people what it's really like. Tell people how high the turnover rate really is. After 3 months 90% of people have left. You guys are a bunch of crooks.

    It has changed my life for the better! Gives financial freedom if you stick with it and work hard.

    Cons

    Some long days and travel.

    My advice is to have more classroom training and more online training while waiting for licensing. Also, more mentoring and management training for those in the frontline each day.

    I worked at Combined Insurance for less than a year

    Pros

    I made this account and review strictly because I feel I have a duty to inform people about this company. No pros.

    Cons

    I will describe my experience with this company. I have worked in the insurance industry since I was 18 and have been with the same company, not combined/chubb. I was contacted by a “territory manager” which is the term they tell regular agents to use to do hiring. There is a trickle down in commissions and the more people you hire, the more commission/residuals you receive. That was not what I was told. The “territory...

    I worked at Combined Insurance for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My Team...hands down. They were my only support system and made coming to work every day bearable . Vacation Policy. Work from Home Options. Gym on-site (Discounted Rate). Easy Location to commute to.

    Cons

    Director Level Manager does not invest time for professional development and lateral or vertical movement. Delegates tasks to others on the team without taking any initiative to complete them his/herself. For an Early Careers Professional, the department is very transactional and always works to the "next Monday" which provides extensive long hours and weekend work in order to achieve business needs. The company as...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they voice concerns about direct and upper management. When over 5+ employees voice these concerns, it should be warranted to investigate the issues. Especially when almost the entire team turns over within 9 months. Provide transparent development. Do not string a long employees, be up front and transparent with them. Better Work Life Balance. Better Compensation.
