    Good job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits. Really loved my job; had many years with them.

    ConsWill merge offices to get rid of employees. Then you end up in unemployment line no matter how long you've been there

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your long term employees as they are loyal

    A great Place to Work

    Insurance Agent (Current Employee) Bohemia, NY

    ProsCombined gives you all the tools that you need to succeed. They work hand in hand to make sure that you become a great producer. The product that you sell are great both in price and in benefit they practically sell themselves.

    ConsDriving it is a door to door sales position so it requires you to drive to all your clients.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    You get what you put in

    Sales Agent (Current Employee) Saint Charles, MD

    ProsGood company to work for but you have to have to hustle your butt off. Like all sales jobs you have to be out finding new leads and promoting yourself. Company gives you leads but they are not really good. Products are good and training is excellent. Make sure you have a good Territory Manager who will work with you and keep you focused. You get what you put in. Unlimited opportunity is available but YOU have to work hard and get it.

    ConsYou have to travel to Glenview IL for 2 weeks for training. Training allowance in not that much. Not a lot of people know who Combined Insurance is so you have to talk about company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more money on advertising. Provide a longer training allowance. Invest in better leads.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe training was excellent, and management was easy to communicate with. I was in control of my destiny.

    ConsThis position can consume you if you let it. You must be very good at time management, and have excellent people skills.

    Like many jobs in life, it's what you make of it. Either way you are in control of your own destiny.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat support, mostly made up of professional and motivated employees that understand relationship building and keys to success. To be honest, the Agent position is an excellent opportunity if you "have what it takes". People who have good personal skills, honest, hardworking and intelligent will do well. It is not for the weak willed or people looking for instant gratification because all good work takes time to master along with real/honest effort.

    ConsThe truth is (and I mean this as objectively as possible) the Agent position is not as easy as it seems but can be very rewarding if worked at with the right attitude and planning. Also, it would be nice if the company helped out with some expenses for agents (although if you sell enough it's worth it anyways)

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest as much time and effort as you can in some of the people who may need it to get up on their feet and allow them to get the ball rolling for themselves with their business books.

    Great Financial and Career Opportunity!

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Buffalo, NY

    ProsOpportunity to earn is unlimited and opportunity to move up within the company is based on performance, not tenure. Weekly and Monthly bonuses. Freedom to create ones own schedule.

    ConsRequires use of a reliable vehicle, and is time consuming, must drive a half an hour or so for work on occasion. Dedication and ambition are necessary to succeed and excel above expectations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to develop employees who have been around for awhile, they are your strengths.

    A learning experience for new Insurance Agents

    Insurance Agent (Former Employee) Rochester, NY

    ProsGreat boot camps experience for all new in the business

    ConsThe cold calling makes up about half of the day

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to invest in a business building - office building - instead of various hotel conference rooms for training

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
