  • The advantages of working for Combined are the initial training of its products and sale culture or the PMA (positive mental attitude) philosophy (in 8 reviews)

  • Territory managers have poor coaching skills and therefore micromanage their agents (in 12 reviews)

    Pros

    Agents and managers ae W2 with benefits provided. Training is exceptional and continues throughout your career. Clear defined path if you wish to get into management. PMA - Positive Mental Attitude. Hardest working highest paying job you will ever have

    Cons

    If you don't like to work hard and follow systems and processes you won't be successful. Not an easy job, but worth it in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the excellent training and keeping the agents accountable.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My experience has been, when I have ideas, people listen. In the past year, I have seen my ideas become reality. This was only possible because of an amazing and supportive team and managers who want to improve (and not just maintain). As an employee in our corporate headquarters, I have seen so many changes in the last year, and I am excited to see what happens next.

    Cons

    This is an old company, and with an old company comes a bit of a "set in your ways" mentality. There is a lot that needs to be done here. So if you come to Combined Insurance, don't expect to succeed unless you put in the hours and are willing to help the team move into the 21st century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are behind the curve in diversity. Fix this. Also, while the benefits are great - increase your pay/raises/bonuses if you want to attract and retain the best.

    Your clients are not protected from other Combined Agents so there is weak opportunity for long time residual income

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. If you are interested in Terriory Management it is great. No long term agents work here because they don't get the leads TM's do.

    Cons

    Very cheap company. No mileage of food re-imbursement even if they ask you to drive hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let agents build a business. They can't even get a list of sold clients. Really?

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time

    Pros

    I joined Combined Insurance almost 2 years ago and it's one of the best decisions I have made in my career. Combined is a great organization filled with employees who are cooperative, collaborative, and full of PMA!

    Cons

    I purposefully joined a smaller Company however, the speed of change with limited resources, although exciting, can be exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to empower new employees help achieve and exceed the Company's goals.

    The people are just incredible. Everyone is willing to lend a hand and help you in any way that you need.

    Pros

    I have been working for Combined Insurance for a couple of years now and I would say that the opportunities I have been presented with are definitely worth the effort and time that I have put in. Combined Insurance definitely puts in the time and money to make sure that you are properly trained before you start the position on your own. I would definitely reccommend Combined as a company to look into.

    Cons

    No cons as of yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job
