Pros

Opportunity for advancement has always been visibly attainable, but requires hard work. Innovative minds excel if they can also effectively sell their ideas. There is an emphasis on mentoring and coaching for those who seek it out. The desire must be there, though.

Cons

There is still some "who you know" is better than "what you know" mentality. Too many long-term employees set in their ways and not adaptive to change. The industry changes, and we need to also. Makes progress difficult sometimes, but that is starting to turn more favorably.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This definitely does not apply to all, but pay more attention to body of work rather than what so-and-so says. Push for more innovation.

    Pros

    Farmers wins awards for their training. They put a lot of time, effort, and money into training adjusters with no experience.

    Cons

    Once you've made it through training and become a competent adjuster, Farmers seems to want you to move on so that they can hire someone else in for less pay.

    This used to be a loyal company to work for until it was taken over by a major international company.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to move up in the company, limited travel. There are good opportunities to continue your education.

    Cons

    Most jobs are low pay for the industry, poor upper management, limited ability to work from home and no flexible hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop laying off good experienced workers only to hire limited experience and quit out sourcing jobs that should be kept state side.
