    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great opportunity in Rochester, NY! Career advancement as fast or as slow as you want it. Lots of job flexibility, and virtually unlimited income. Full benefit package. The company is rapidly growing as well as our Rochester market. This career opportunity changed my life and it could do the same for others.

    Cons

    Not for everyone, must have strong work ethic, and be self driven. Not a con but definitely something needed to be successful at this company.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was a commissioned employee so I was on my own most of the time. I was also in control of my schedule for the most part.

    Cons

    "Fake it 'til you make it". "Positive mental attitude". No matter how bad things get you are told it is great.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make sure your average employees can make a living. "Sink or swim" is not a good mentality for people's livelihood.

    I worked at Combined Insurance for more than a year

    Pros

    There is never a dull moment. It was important to me to sell something I believed in, and I am a policyholder to this day. I met some amazing, interesting co-workers and clients during my 2.5 years with the company.

    Cons

    It is incredibly difficult to make a living during your first year+ in the field. Management places tremendous pressure on agents and sales managers without providing remotely adequate support. Be prepared to travel 30-80% of the time and to put an insane amount of wear and tear on your car. Combined provides excellent insurance policies but uses and abuses its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Provide transparency about travel and sales expectations. Stop blaming agents and sales managers for lack of results. Create a safer, more supportive environment - particularly for women.
