  5. It's ok if you live in a large city, if not you are sort of alienated from what's going on. Like everybody her co.

    Pros

    Independence for this specific position. Tech support is ok. Benefits for a lower income town is good.

    Cons

    Not competitive in a larger city with other higher paying jobs with way less stress.

    Advice to Management

    Meh.

    Pros

    There is a small group of long timers who would never leave the company probably because of the good ole pension program. They have the loyalty to the company probably because Farmers is the only place they worked in their lives.

    Cons

    Then, there is a group of executives who either came from bought out companies or parachuted from Zurich who treat employees like any other corporate employees. Only people who are willing to butter up the executives will get promotion and good pay raise. Nothing special about the people, benefits, or culture. Just an average American corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like you would answer to your boss, not just as means to get what you want in your career.
