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

    Pros

    Excellent Company where your earning potential is unlimited as well as advancement. I started my career with Combined in February of 2016 became An Account Executive within three months and a Territory Manager within my first six months with this company. We at Combined believe in always having and Positive Mental Attitude, with the tools no training I have received I can accomplish anything. I recommend Combined Insurance to anyone whom has the desire to help protect people along with making a great living

    Cons

    This is not an 8-5 job, if you want to be successful you must work hard. Sometimes in the evening hours or weekends. I don't feel this to be a negative because I knew my hard work and dedication would pay off.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to managers still in contact with your agents, account executive, and territory managers.

    Pros

    I worked with Combined Insurance in 2013-2014 as a Territory Manager until my dad became deathly ill. After a leave of absence I returned to Combined because they are a true class act touting the commitment of "Do the right thing because it is the right thing today!"

    Cons

    I have no cons to report!

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to give at this time.

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential, incentive trips, and benefits.

    Not a 9-5 job - if you want to be really successful, be willing to put in the work but the pay is definitely worth it.

    They provide great training and tools to help you be successful. The training program is laid out weekly and if followed the chance for success is excellent. The company provides support for those who want to work and be successful.

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

    Pros

    Unlimited income...generous and attainable bonus structure...ability to build a residual income and career.....ability to help people when they need it most.

    Cons

    Commission based no can be a bit of a struggle if you don't produce. The leads that are generated from existing and lapsed clients are disorganized and lead to a lot of confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the lead process.....up date product lines to compete with the market
    Stop the parading of successful agents on a weekly basis....makes the culture of office appear more like a multi level marketing gig then a career.
    Work closer with the struggling agents to help them get through the first year

    Pros

    Decent commission structure, company incentives. The sales training is excellent

    Cons

    Awful hours, company has a different "incentive week" every other week to try to get you to work weekends. The only way you can make a decent living is working 10-12 hours a day and sometimes weekends. The time you put in is not worth the money you get out
