I have been working at Consumer United full-time (less than a year)

Pros

-Group of young people creating careers - high energy sales floor
-Culture is professional but not uptight - CEO treats everyone to drinks many Fridays, quarterly employee parties, a lounge with games and TV and couches...like to reward employees for hard work
-Mgmt is accessible -- not typical stuffy corporate suits either
-Give internal promotions
-For those in sales, it introduces them to a huge industry and teaches them valuable lifelong skills -- and it's absolutely the best sales program out there -- nice hourly and commish, plus paid training, plus paid state exam, paid license fees.. team environment with healthy competition. (I'm not even in sales but I'm so impressed with what CU offers, after being in the looking-for-a-job market for so long before coming here)

Cons

-Job roles unclear at times, (who can do what)
-Needs more women in sales and internal women-centered events

    Pros

    Great training program that will give you strong sales skills as well as come away with a very valuable insurance license. A fun diverse work environment that encourages hard work and rewards performance.

    In a tough job market, Consumer United was willing to take a chance on me and after a little bit of training and hard work I feel I have gained the skills necessary to succeed at any company and in any role.

    I made 40K my first year out of school, I think that's pretty good and that's just average, some of my friends made over 50.

    Everyone that works here is friendly and continual training is offered if you are not hitting your numbers.

    Cons

    The exam is very challenging and a lot of people are not able to pass, if you don't devote 100% of your time you will not pass. You will have to study while not

    The customers of Consumer United can be a little moody so don't work here if you afraid to hear someone yell, however I'm told it is not nearly as bad as some other sales roles. You need to be able to handle rejection.

    If you are even the slightest bit challenged with computers you will struggle.
