I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Self employed, make your own hours, be your own boss, generous commission schedule

Cons

District managers are constantly misrepresenting what the company offers and what they will do for you. It is NOT made clear that you will pay back every dollar they give you if you do not hit their top tier for production. If you have to pay back they want their money immediately and will send you to a collections company immediately if you don't pay. The collections company they use are thugs who will threaten you with lawsuits if you don't pay what they want.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more honest with new hires and stop hiring people to hire them. It makes for a poor customer experience.

    Pros

    The ability to work from home, if your boss lets you, which is dependent on if your boss likes you or not.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, hemorrhaging both claims adjusters and agents. Management is only concerned with themselves and their pet projects, no real direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for a new company to work for.

    Pros

    Pay, Car, Gas Card, Some cool co-workers

    Cons

    This is a brutal claims department to work for. Employee morale is very low.

    Management in this company is like a pack of wild hyenas. They don't care about anything except for their own position. Upper management in this company is like a game of musical chairs.

    They're always coming up with silly new ideas and pilot projects, and usually for selfish reasons more than anything else. Their performance objectives have changed every single year that I've been with the company. If these geniuses are so smart, then why do they have to change everything all the time?

    The workload in claims is way too much to handle. My fellow claims adjusters and I are walking around in a daze half the time due to the stress. Adjusters with 10-20 years of experience are leaving or retiring, or going on anti-anxiety meds just to get by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother? They really couldn't care less.
