    Sounds like Combined Insurance. Turn around and run.

    I work for Aon. What kind of position is it? Aon is a HUGE company, so to offer any details is difficult unless I know more specifics. But I would definitely disagree with Insuranceman....Aon is not something to run from.

    From what I've read AON is spinning off Combined.

    Jeremyw81. This is not an Instant Message Board, so proper capitalization would be appreciated. It makes for easier reading.:policeman:

    This sounds like Combined.

    I think Combined Senior Division is being spun off and combined with Sterling, but I haven't heard about Combined, which is now called 7 Essential or something like that. See my post in the other thread.

    Aon in general is probably a pretty good company that has excellent ratings, and has a lot of divisions.

    But what Jeremy described is the m.o. for Combined insurance, which operates one of the biggest revolving doors in the industry, rivaled today by maybe only NAA and United American and it's related companies. It is definitely something to run if you're broke and also is something to run from unless you are into working for 100% commission driving all over the rural areas of the state picking up semi annual premiums and knocking on doors. Since you are captive, you can't get out of doing it. They are some of the biggest liars and bs artists I've ever run across, and when you resign, you almost feel like you're trying to leave some kind of cult with the response you get.

    Honestly I'd go to work for AFLAC before working for Combined again.

    Combined seemed kind of "cult -like" to me, but then, a lot of organizations could be possibly considered "cult-like", so who knows?

    All I know is I was creeped out by my own actions in talking with them- felt like I was committing unmentionables.
