    Pros

    Combined has a great culture and people who have been there for many years. It's a comfortable place to grow your career. The employees are friendly and welcoming. Lots of older workers mixed in with newer employees.

    Cons

    Some cliques of long time workers. Behind on some technology but improving.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more engagement, and avoid pockets of favoritism

    Good training. Good marketing materials.

    Pros

    Great vibe at first.
    If you have a lot of contacts you might make good money

    Cons

    Fired employees after one year of service for no reasons and then all sales goes to the company.
    Reps and district lie to each other and to customers as well.
    Products is known to be the worst from customers (no sales)
    They keep telling lies about how rich you'd get.
    And you work endless hours for sometime not a penny.
    And on top when you're pay goes wrong it is a nightmare for them to fix it, not like you need money to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lie to new employees about how nice and easy this is cause it's not.

    Pros

    Schooling in Chicago was invaluable. You learn so much in such a short amount of time. It doesn’t translate well to the field, you have to tweak it some and make the sales pitch your own. I loved this job the first 3 months I excelled and made top sales person in the district(5 states) a few times and always exceeded sales goals until my manager left and I had no one to ask questions or get advice or training from.

    Cons

    My district manager left a team of 8 and we were left with only a market director as someone to report to. We no longer had meetings or training or support. Was lied to and told there was a guaranteed base pay the first few months, there wasn’t. They will tell you anything to bring you on because they have to meet recruiting quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people. If you have to lie and say that this job is something that it’s not, that’s a red flag already.
