I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group part-time for less than a year

Pros

Local boss was great help. Online training was very informative. Able to control hours and level of effort. Fantastic commercials help create positive reception from those who have seen them.

Cons

Rate increase immediately after starting with company, went from competitive to non-competitive in a matter of days. Even with commercials, the confusion with competition was still there. Computer system seemed to be a bit antiquated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seems local management has a hard time getting help from regional managers. Saturation of agents may be at too high a rate.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Well known company established work place with good job security. When company does well they share their success with stip payments; enables you to balance work and family life

    Cons

    The opportunity to advance is contingent upon who you know and not always on the skills you posses for the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your managers training in how to manage and open the door to feedback from the employees more than managers

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

    Pros

    good benefits; company encourages promoting from within; very team-oriented environment

    Cons

    You are only getting promoted if you are buddies with the upper mgmt; work/life balance wasn't there; poor communication with from corporate to the local offices; unrealistic goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving Eastward without a fully thought out plan. Constantly changing the business set-up isnt good for you or the people who work for those offices. Its only giving you a bad name in the markets
