    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive review! Our founder, W. Clement Stone, believed having a positive mental attitudie, or PMA, was key for success, and we have found that it is a huge factor for many of our agents' success. We wish you all the best in your future ...

    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

    This is by far the best thing that has ever been presented to me! To start the amount of support this organization gives you is incredible and take it from a guy who has been in sales for 6 years and I was selling cars. Also take it from a guy who grew up in a bad area and very poor so I did not come from money and am self made and this company helped me get where I am today. This company is based on positivity PMA to...

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time

    Pros

    The emphasis on the importance of having a positive mental attitude.

    Cons

    Total commission job. Charge-backs. You will be at the gas station often. A focus on a positive mental attitude but that attitude does not include positively believing that you are worth paying at the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront about the job not being for everyone due to not getting paid much at beginning or paid at all during the training for the test. If you are going to preach pma make sure you can practice it. Being excessively controlling and impatient is not what pma is about.

    Thank you for taking the time to review our company. Having a positive mental attitude, or PMA, is key for being able to persevere through the natural ups and downs of commission-only sales. It’s true that this type of sales is not for everyone, and we regret it wasn’t a good fit ...

    Combined Insurance is an excellent company to work for. Their training and compassion for employees to succeed is unmatched, and the earning potential is unlimited. In addition, they offer amazing benefits including healthcare and 401k. Everyone has a great positive mental attitude to keep you motivated and inspired to work hard.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a learning curve when first starting, however with the great training provided by managers on a daily basis it is almost impossible to fail. There are no specific hours, so if you do not manage your time properly you will not do well at this job.

    Advice to Management

    The management team in the Buffalo branch is amazing. They all want their agents to succeed and are very helpful. This is the best open door policy company I have ever worked for.

    Pros

    Working internally for Combined in Chicago is absolutely the best job I've had. The Positive Mental Attitude pillar is upheld by every person I work with and meet almost every day. I think that attitude is fostered by the supportive, creative and innovative environment where we are all encouraged to learn every day. It doesn't hurt to have great benefits and transparent relationships with upper management either. This...

    Cons

    None at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging employees to share their ideas and thoughts in meetings where they are the least experienced in the room. Keep making time to explain concepts in depth and in person to your staff because they will appreciate the time you take to help them develop their insurance acumen. Keep being flexible with scheduling, working from home, PTO days.

    Pros

    I started working for Combined Insurance in December and I must say this is the best opportunity I could find to build my career. I didn't come from an insurance industry background, and I was a little skeptical about changing my career path, but after I had an interview with HR and management to learn more about this company and career growth opportunity, I decided to take it to the next level. From that day on, I received...

    Cons

    This is not an 8-5 job, if you want to be successful you must work hard. Sometimes in the evening hours or weekends. I don't feel this to be a negative because I knew my hard work and dedication would pay off.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to managers still in contact with your agents, account executive, and territory managers.

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

    Pros

    Paid training in Chicago is spectacular! Good products. Positive Mental Attitude approach is kinda dumb but it works!

    Cons

    Driving to the ends of the earth to reach assigned territory. "Leads" is a binder of current customers and a list of businesses in the area. No name recognition (no one has ever heard of Combined Insurance). 100% cold calling + 100% commission = Go work somewhere else

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy living off your residual commissions because no new business is going to happen.

    Wes Wickum, Dean Mueller and Kim Lambert are an amazing team. They are very supportive and teach you how to be a success! Great training and leadership.

    Cons

    There are none, unless you expect the company to give you a paycheck for being lazy. If you fail, it's because you didn't put in the effort to learn and create your own destiny. Yes ... you have to work hard .. grow up and accept responsibility for your own success!! They give you the tools ... USE them!!

    Advice to Management
