    Pros

    Great compensation, attainable goals, earnings potential, training, activities outside work, flexibility, work from home if qualified. I love my job and love the company. They've given me the opportunity to make more money than I've ever made before in a very short time.

    Cons

    Some micromanagement, 401k still not great, PTO compensation is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Update 401k and PTO compensation

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, training, compensation, promotional opportunities and morale. Considering the business we are in, one would expect a sweat shop type environment but working for this organization is anything but that. Very employee and customer focus and I could not ask for anything other. Would recommend SelectQuote to anyone looking for a great work environment.

    Cons

    Management can be better trained and more one on one coaching. Work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging your team it helps! Also, seek continuous development and equip yourself so you can better equip your team.

    Pros

    Love helping people, this isn't a job its a career and that career is getting the opportunity to help seniors make life decisions about their health care. So while it may be a sales job I don't look at it that way. I'm helping people all day ever day. My co-workers are absolutely amazing, management is very laid back as long as we are hitting our numbers and even if not they are always there for you. We have several other departments making us the largest Medicare Advisory Firm in the US.

    Cons

    The emotional feeling at the end of the enrollment period where someone misses their enrollment. Other than that are no con's I can think of with this company. It's the mot amazing company I've ever worked for, its like a family environment, and management always has your bck!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

    Good place to work. I appreciate the opportunities for upward mobility and the people I work with. They seem to be trying to stay modern while holding on to good values.

    Trying to grow and change to fast. Sometimes they implement an idea before it should be tried.

    I have been working at SelectQuote full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible in terms of work life vs family life.
    Great middle management team as feedback is always provided in a constructive manner.
    Location makes for an easy commute
    Very flexible schedule

    Cons

    Upper management/executive does not tend to give much face time to staff underneath them.
    Upper management/executive tends to have a lack of direction or understanding of how some of the departments work.
    Turn around in sales is very evident and the lack of communication from upper management/executive w/ regards does not create for a very positive feeling of where the company is headed
    Career opportunities seem to be headed towards cheaper labor in other parts of country.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent in terms of where the company is headed. What is the 5-10 year plan for all offices through-out the country.
    Executive staff really needs to give more face time to middle and upper management.
    Create more excitement for being employed at Select Quote!!
