    I have been working at HealthMarkets full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working with this company for close to 4 years now and I absolutely love my job. I enjoy assisting and supporting all of our local agents, they are like a family to me. I have a great boss and the pay is outstanding. They provide me with great benefits and vacation time. All the perks.
    Working here I have learned so much about Insurance and how to better protect my family and make the right choices. This position has been a blessing for me.

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons I can think of. As I said this position has offered me everything I need.

    I have been working at HealthMarkets full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Coming from an Engineering career and working in the corporate world for over 10 years, it was an incredible change to finally be able to be paid for my efforts. At HealthMarkets it is simple... The harder you work, the more money that I made for my family. As a new sales representative you will find the support that you will receive to get you business going is fantastic. They had several already successful agents that I just carbon copied what they were doing and added my hard work and commitment to get me to the financial position that my family needed. If your looking for a career then I would recommend HealthMarkets, if your just looking for your next job then I would probably keep looking before your join this company.

    Cons

    With the ever changing laws in the health insurance industry there seems to be a lot of training that I am going through. But like I say to my son, "If your not learning, then your not growing".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Management would be to stay ahead of the changes for us so that we can continue to be ready for the next challenge that we seem to have in this changing industry.

    I have been working at HealthMarkets full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you want to start a career in sales this is the company to be at. They have a template of structure for every person wheter you have never been in direct sales or experienced their system works. Best lead program in the industry and cutting edge technology which will make your job easier and be able to close more clients. You can make what your WORTH! I made 1 million dollars in commissions in my first 4 years.

    Cons

    What I noticed being in sales its tough for someone who has call reluctancy. I find that most people struggle when they have to structure their own schedule. When you new you have to treat it like a job and put a activity schedule together. Follow-thru is KEY!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a feel for the sales force. Make sure to always seek out advice from the people that sell every day!

    I have been working at HealthMarkets as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Unlimited income potential (I was in six figures by year two), great flexibility allows more time with family and hobbies, renewal income stream. Management open to change and advice. Great growth potential with a management path for agents. Good stock matching program.

    Cons

    Management sometimes slow to implement changes. Some agents probably get to stick around longer than they should. No benefits for agents as it is on a 1099 basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to agents and implement that advice more where possible. Great company to work for though.

    Pros

    I came to Heath Markets after a year with a leading life insurance company. I am entering my third year with Health Markets.
    I have found the company to have a very proactive view of the ever changing insurance market. They excel at keeping us, as field agents, informed and trained to understand the changes and how the changes will affect our clients
    Health Markets provides all our marketing material, including a CRM program and email support system. We were required to pay for all the materials, including photo copies they required, at the other company.
    I have found the management to always be available when I have a question or problem. I have had a Sales Manager, who I do not report to, go on a sales call with me.
    The selections of products that I can present are varied and seem limitless. I can put an insurance plan together for almost any need.
    If you are considering a career in the Insurance field, save yourself time and contact Health Markets.

    Cons

    The Insurance Industry is not an easy sell. Most complaints I hear from other agents are because they have no real field experience and don’t know how to build a book of business. It takes time to build a client base and many individuals think they can make thousands of dollars very quickly. Yes, some do, but most have to make a commitment to hard work and putting in the time to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on industry trends and continue to develop relationships that help us excel.

    Pros

    The people make this company special, but the move to high level computer sales tools has made this company exceptional. I never lose because of product and the chance to work with supplemental and life products allow me to stay busy while not in open enrollment.

    Cons

    I enjoyed seeing more people at recognition events. I understand the cutbacks but the events were always a huge motivation for me and I wish more agents could experience what I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your people. The agents, sales support staff both in the field and at home office continue to be the life blood of this company. Build on your successes but don't forget the past. It will only make this company stronger.
