    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group

    Pros

    The benefits package is good but getting less and less each year. Some departments allowed flexible work schedules. Convenient cafeteria with decent food.

    Cons

    Somewhat unfriendly atmosphere. Not customer friendly in their processes and procedures. Not enough quality support for agents. Developed a severance package policy and promoted it as a new benefit for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Farmers was successful for many years in spite of itself. Investments have been made to help bring in new business but very little has been invested in the servicing of business or delivering the promise. This is a great time to focus on providing a great customer experience and bringing the companies processes into the current century.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group

    Pros

    Working for an agent, who is sel-employed, can be flexible. There are opportunities within the office to perform many functions from writing policies to marketing and customer service. If the book of business exceeds 1,000 policies, the phone calls are constant. Getting insurance license is usually required. This provides a great deal of information and is transferable to other companies.

    Cons

    There is no room for promotion as you are not an employee of Farmers Insurance but of the Agent. If Sales are poor it can affect the stability of job. Very little training. Their CRM system is complex and billing is cumbersome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More taining for effective performance would be helpful.
