    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -In my position, I work from home and that is a huge plus
    -My schedule is flexible (I'm a salaried employee)
    -My manager doesn't micromanage-you get your job done however you need to, in as many hours as you need to
    -Company provided vehicle
    -The University of Farmers training is great! Informative, fun, and you get to travel to Los Angeles for it
    -Farmers not only supports obtaining higher education (insurance designations), but will pay for it and give you bonuses once complete
    -The company is very involved with various charities, especially The March of Dimes
    -Unlike other well-known insurance companies, Farmers doesn't do restructuring every couple of years (ie management layoffs and demotions, only to do a mass manager hiring a few years later...and repeat)
    -I truly felt welcomed when I was hired, not only by my direct managers, but by the company as a whole. They do a good job of reaching out to you and thanking you for joining the team.

    Cons

    -The claims computer program (system used by anyone in any sort of claims capacity) is a bit complicated to use. It provides a lot of information, but not user friendly
    -I don't like not being able to find a job salary grid on their intranet. One can find job descriptions, but the salary ranges aren't readily available (I like to know what my earning potential is; it keeps me motivated)
    -Depending on the position, your initial training may drag out and become boring (but I suppose it is better to have too much training, rather than not enough)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
