I have been working at Farmers Group
Pros – Farmers pays its employees fairly well in our market, and provides a financially rewarding work environment to include 401(k) matching, annual bonus, and fairly competitive salary. The office environment varies wildly from office to office, but in the one I work in it's collaborative, and friendly.
This is a good place to work if you can work hard, and have less of a life than most people.
Cons – Cons at Farmers include the fact that you can expect to be overworked, and have obstacles put directly into your way. Claims representatives are often overloaded with work, but yet are often asked to attend meetings, training conferences, and the like that take upwards of a half day or more on a fairly frequent basis. The performance management system is also a place that is rife for abuse, with a significant portion of your review dedicated to "behaviors" which are highly subjective.
Advice to Senior Management – - Do better, more accurate business projections, and hire accordingly, quickly.
- Get into the trenches with the employees and work our desks with us for a few days and see
the chaos for yourself before you think about adding more metrics or raising the bar on current
