I have been working at Farmers Automobile Insurance full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

A job.............people are nice, a paycheck, and health care.

Cons

Micro manged, Management do not know what to do.an are basically lackeys of poor upper Management. Every failure from Progressive, as well the worst people who came from other companies gravitate to Farmers. HR, is a poor joke.

Horrible work environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Close your doors, start over. You have a staff that hates you. and no one cares.....

    I worked at Farmers Automobile Insurance as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Name recognition helped with sales

    Cons

    Quota system means every quarter you may lose your contract. One policy short and you are out. This is even though you've invested your own money to build your own agency.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quota system is bad for customers and agents. Agents who don't work will starve...don't need the company to demand that you sell so much of their product or else

    I worked at Farmers Automobile Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great job out of college, was fun a lot of times and you learn a lot about liability car insurance, things you wouldn't know otherwise. Company paid for 2 months of training, including travel. They were always promoting to get involved in whatever direction you want to go with the company, plenty of room for growth! Pay raise after one year and a small bonus.

    Cons

    Really the only downside was the "numbers" you were expected to achieve. I understand it's the only way for them to set standards and to give incentive to getting the job done quicker, and several other things...but this is where corporate guidelines come in that most of the time don't make sense on the ground level. Felt some things were slightly unethical in obtaining these numbers. The other downside is that you have to talk to people involved in accidents that are flat out liars and you know are screwing the system-and its disgusting and so wrong. I couldn't stand talking to such fowl people-that's just a personal preference...of course you got to save the day for good people too!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your reps are telling you and actually take active to implement it on a local level vs. always trying to get something approved through corporate. If it works great, if it doesn't keep moving on until you find the best answer!
