    Pros

    Work hard, play hard is the name of the game. SelectQuote gives you every opportunity to succeed and listens to employees! They are very conscious what employees need and want and strive to make the office a great place to work.

    Cons

    Small company that has grown fast, has led to some salary issues but they are working towards making this a competitive place to work. Hoping they instill more employee benefits such as a more competitive 401k and better salary plans for non- agents who have no commission structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing working toward a better, more competitive place to work in the job market.

    Decent insurance job

    Former Employee - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at SelectQuote full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Efficient sales process and your role is pretty straightforward, call, answer phone, sell term life insurance, they generate the leads, good pipeline once it gets going,

    Cons

    no motivation, management needs improvement, it is a grind and there is no real sense that they care for the employees, pay structure is not very transparent nor is it lucrative or fair, rules change and more hoops depending on what the company wants, too many moving targets, lots of hours was no problem until wfh was lifted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little recognition goes a long way, happy employees are good and productive employees

    Pros

    People you work with....that's about it

    Cons

    Don't believe the pay they promise you. Will NEVER happen!!
    Senior Mgt is absolutely delusional, very unattainable goals
    Micro managed to the endth degree
    Don't believe what they tell you with compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and looks what's going on around you. There is nothing "growing"in this company you are having attrition every month because you over promise and seriously under deliver. If you don't hit the unattainable goals they demand you work 6 days or they will do there best to get rid of you

    Managers Are Mean, A Lot Of Changes In Rules and Compensation

    Former Employee - Licensed Insurance Agent in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at SelectQuote full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Location is close to public transportation

    Cons

    Some managers are just plain mean. They put you down. The best leads are only given to the top performers. Way too many coaching meetings with your mean manager which take time away from the phones. They micro manage you to death like "why are you 5 minutes late coming back from break? Geez, sorry I wasn't feeling well and had to relieve myself in the bathroom longer." Constant changes on a weekly basis. Changes in sales rules and changes in calculating commission/compensation. Most people don't know what their next paycheck will be. Managers threaten to fire you but they don't because they don't want you to get unemployment. They want to make you miserable so you quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice or at least pretend to be nice.

    Pros

    Great industry potential but find a different company to work for. Negative treatment. Belittling approach. Management is a disaster in what 'should' be a golden opportunity.

    Cons

    Companies that hire great talent usually back up the investment with positive pro's as dept leaders. This place uses homegrown insiders who should still be on the phones instead of snarking and barking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Successful execution requires excellent leaders who provide meaningful feedback and positive environments.

    Pros

    If you are absolutely desperate and your children are starving. And you are mentally strong enough to endure mental and even some cases of physical assault on the jobsite

    Cons

    Women have faced discrimination, pregnant women have been fired, cerebral palsy victim was terminated, cancer patient fired by phone and had her ground plug broke off her computer causing her to be shocked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to worship money and live your empty secular lives devoid of compassion

    Pros

    You are given every tool necessary to succeed here. Management is fantastic and truly invested in their employees. SelectQuote is a culture like no other I have ever experienced. Sure, this is a sales job and your numbers matter, but going to work is enjoyable and rewarding. It's wonderful how accommodating they are to their hard working employees. Everything we were told on the first day of training has been proven true. No empty promises here, this is a company you can be PROUD to be a part of.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's a little cold or a little hot in there, but everyone has HVAC issues from time to time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.

    Former Employee - Insurance Sales Agent in San Diego, CA

    I worked at SelectQuote full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -competitive pay
    -laid back environment (for the most part)
    -very generous on things like free food/lunches and very up to date on technology/systems

    Cons

    -being a fairly new company, there are constant changes happening often. alot of these changes introduce new challenges and head aches
    -poor benefits compared to my previous employers
    -quality of leads are random, some are decent but most are poor
    -management ... at first very laid back but as of late are going towards a more and more micro management style

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more encouragement to your staff and less "meetings" about how poor your employees are performining may increase the overall morale of the agents on the sales floor
