    I have been working at iSelect full-time

    Pros

    The theoretical part of the training it is well structured and you can learn the basic about private health insurance.

    Cons

    To many promises for career progression and high commissions it is not real. Don't quit your current job to be there you will regret. It better to work in cold call center, than to have limited leads theoretically warm leads and try achieve targets without real connects.

    I worked at iSelect full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One free coffee per day from the cafe which the company pays for. Some managers are actually great to be around and genuinely want to help and invest the efforts to demonstrate company values.

    Cons

    Rarely any career progression here due to constantly restructuring and redundancies. Even if there is you'll question how much longer is your role safe for before you get the cut. Managers do not lead by example. In fact they do the complete opposite. Always focusing on the negatives. Rather than incentivise to encourage they would penalize and that is how they would enforce it. Targets and KPIs consistently changes and mid to senior managers frequently come up with new ways to dock you're pay. Deductions that you are made aware of only days before monthnend. This company is run by a group of cowboys, you don't want to work here!
