    Pros

    Income opportunity is good. Work your own hours. Residule income after a year. Really good training!

    Cons

    You are self employed so may have to work evenings and weekends at times. Pay is lower to start. Not for someone who needs a paycheck tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting the agents first.

    Pros

    NONE. The leadership is nothing but a bunch of liars & crooks!

    Cons

    ALL of the Management are nothing more than LIARS & THIEVES! They just stole MILLIONS of dollars from all the agents!

    Advice to Management

    Well... those crooks just sold thee company to United & cashed out by basically screwing EVERY employee, agent, etc... I guess my only advice would be to enjoy all that money you just stole from everyone.. Unreal.. First Hidebrand steals millions, now Fasola steals millions.

    Pros

    being your own boss, but completely mirco managed

    Cons

    They will train you the wrong way to sell, they try to be sneaky and add a bunch of extras onto peoples coverage. Then they blame the agent even though this is their training process

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

    Pros

    HealthMarkets is a company that truly values its employees. I worked on a contract basis within the marketing department for more than a year before my position was made permanent. But, in that time frame, I was always treated as a valuable, knowledgeable member of the team.

    I enjoy coming to work every day because of the great environment our department and company leaders have helped cultivate. My work is both challenging and rewarding, and - most importantly - I can see how my efforts fit into the company's goals and progress. I appreciate the ways in which management promotes personal and professional development. The leadership team takes your personal career goals into consideration work alongside you to help you reach them. I have never worked with such competent and compassionate people!

    Another important thing to note: The CEO is very transparent with employees. The company holds meetings throughout the year to address the state of the industry as well as the company's place in it. In these meetings, top leadership sit in a panel form and answer employee-submitted questions. I like this format, and it makes me feel like employees' concerns are heard and considered.

    Cons

    The company holidays are somewhat limited. However, there are other benefits that far outweigh this con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! It's working, and your efforts do not go unnoticed.

    I worked at HealthMarkets full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company was great in the beginning, offering quarterly bonuses, company parties, online classes to expand your skills, advancement opportunities, great benefits and management that actually listened to the employees.

    Cons

    After multi state fines, several rounds of layoffs, outsourcing many departments, the company has never been the same. The only perks left was still being employed.

    Pros

    honestly can't think of many. management was nice i guess

    Cons

    underpaid, benefits were not great, IT department relied too much on outside contractors and took on more than it could handle without resorting to spending months upon months in crunch time with frequent unpaid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    learn the meaning of "work-life balance". grow a spine and push back on the business department.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, full control of your income, CRM, opportunity to work remotely, bonuses. Trips are a nice perk. Many people don’t make it because they don’t put in the effort. If people just picked up the phone and dialed, the money starts coming. First real month for me was last December. I made $5500 that month in my first month of calling and using the leads. Now only 9 months later I average 7k to 8k a month. My book is growing by the day and I will double these numbers in less than another year. No doubt. Has been really nice so far in the short time I’ve been with the company, and I haven’t even started Medicare yet.

    Cons

    None. You have to work at the job and get on the phone with warm leads. Not for everyone, but those that put in the effort will be rewarded for their efforts.

    Advice to Management

    I’ll think about this... So far so good
