    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time

    Pros

    friendly enough people at home office

    Cons

    combined pays lower than average, tends to attract a lower level of talent that comes with it. High home office staff turn around, leading loss of knowledge. focus is all on the agents and supporting them. staff are expected to do things that have nothing to do with their position, from chasing down refunds to making sure they get applied correctly to a policy, none of which is underwriting related. Lots of system testing done by unqualified staff, who really have no idea what they're doing. Things are done quickly to get high volumes processed, but nothing is done properly. Fixing problems instead of preventing problems is the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to home office salaries. Try to retain talent. Otherwise the problems will continue.

    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn and grow your career
    Working on delivering latest technology solutions
    CEO and CIO are both great visionaries and leaders

    Cons

    There is constant change in the environment and you have to be prepared to adopt and operate in such an environment. There is some apparent politics and sometimes even turf wars taking place at executive layers.

    Pays every time, I've seen and heard so many stories of people getting paid from just a stitch and even worse. Love the support I get. If need proof we got it.

    Pros

    This company provides superior training and ongoing support. Their commission structure is very generous. They pay to train you. I have had clients claim and the process was simple. This company pays on it's claims! The company has undergone major changes in the last two years. Same great products, but updated marketing.

    Cons

    If you want a paycheque for doing nothing, don't go into sales!

    Advice to Management

    Management is awesome! Best people I've ever worked with.

    Pros

    You're self employed Wich let's you get tax bonuses. Need to make enough for this yup be with while though.

    Cons

    Being self employed is not for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Move structure of earnings to base + commission. Larger sales force will over all improve earnings across the board.

    Pros

    IF they decide to they can give you leads.

    Cons

    Way too many to name. Leaders are really unprofessional in my opinion. They will tell you they pay you for training. Once you are in they find a reason not to pay you. It's long hours and a lot of travel. If you have a problem you can't complain. Complaints are seen as negative behavior. Don't disclose a disability either.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any.
