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

    Pros

    The workplace environment is amazing with the pma Philosophy( positive mental attitude) I am in charge of my schedule and income. They train at all levels after 13 yes I still get great training and support from my management team.

    Cons

    This is sales!!! If you can't handle that this is not the career path for you. Most people that have many cons about combined just couldn't do it and rather than admit it blame this great organization. This company has given my family a new life. I make such figures and have secured financial freedom.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    So far so good. I have just completed my 3rd day of training. So I'm writing this review from my hotel. I am very excited about this new opportunity. I have read some of the reviews on here some negative some positive but I am never going to allow my self to be discouraged by someone else's failure. I will say that this training is intense but I know its going to pay off and I look forward to doing another review in 3 months to update you on my success. The breakfast at the hotel is very good and the company pays for everything. They fly you in and pay for your lodging. They give you a prepaid credit card that you can use for food and things that you need. My trainer is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. My room is very clean . They shuttle you to and from training and the cafeteria food is pretty darn good. As far as income potential they really give you a positive out look.

    Cons

    They throw a lot at you in a short time. You have to stay on your toes and memorize a lot of information but you know the old saying no pain no gain.

    Pros

    Ongoing training, daily meetings - PMA - colleagues are nice. Incentive trips. 401K

    Cons

    Many promises of $100K, realistically the 55% commission is broken down to as low as 20% after you sell. The company keeps 80%. High turn-over, revolving door. If you have a license, your Hired! A lot of family members are hired, therefore expect to receive leads 60 miles away or more.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and honest with salary expectations.

    Pros

    Folks are nice and helpful, especially agents since we are all in the same boat hustling.

    Cons

    Talk to 100 people a day outside or door to door and shove your sales in their throat.
    Exhausting walking or driving around all day long.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and stop thinking that your method always work.

    Pros

    No pros at all. Not a good place to work.

    Cons

    A lot of dishonest activities

    Advice to Management

    Please do not offer incentives just to get agents that they know they are not going to satisfy. It is definitely not a good place to work. At the end agents will leave the company anyway. Also pay attention to customers complaints. There are a lot of dishonest agents pushing the insurance along with the Obamacare. People get confuse a lot because the agents do not explain the customers clearly that the insurance has nothing to do with the Insurance Market.
