    I worked at HealthMarkets full-time

    Pros

    Excellent CRM System, excellent training, most proficient secretary and agent contracting ever, generous marketing account, vast mount of health and life plans to offer, no charge backs

    Cons

    Have to drive long distances to clients, mandatory weekly meetings, commission only, no base salary; with hours long lots of days if you really are trying to help people

    Advice to Management

    You have a great company with a incredibly efficient system. I've not seen another company as streamlined as yours and truly am proud of what you have built and brag about you often. When I left I had a family situation that forced me to have to leave. I would suggest adding to your great organization a system that allows for leave of absence so agents like myself can return when things change. Keep up the good work, and please never lose the integrity of offering great plans that offer real solutions to people. Agents like myself appreciate being able to sleep at nite knowing we have truly added real assurance of the security of insurance. I would also add, in this century of technology, I appreciate you wanting to add the personal touch of a face to face with clients, but there is an advantage to offering and having the option and technology of virtual sales. That would catapult you to perfect.

    I have been working at HealthMarkets full-time

    Pros

    I appreciate how this company pays me what I am worth and provides a lot of additional incentives such as leads, technology, and stock. The training also has allowed me to take full advantage in this sometimes confusing industry.

    Cons

    Some people may consider not being paid for when not working a con but if that is the mindset this would not be the best career for them anyway.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the open communication. Can't really think of anything big to improve. Just keep guiding the ship!

    I have been working at HealthMarkets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good starting pay and some good incentives

    Cons

    I almost never speak to my supervisor. He comes in sits at his computer and then leaves. I never get any feed back or coaching. You can move around if you are in the "inc-rowd" but if you are not one of those select few you will not move up.

    Advice to Management

    need more leadership coaching. need some form of program that provides training to become a manager or supervisor.
