Pros

It is a flexible FT position and you can sometimes work from home, but don't make a habit of it too often!

Cons

Instead of hiring the right amount of staff, when people leave/quit/get fired they just reassign their work to the remaining staff and refuse to hire more people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep yourself right-staffed in the claims dept so people don't get burned out. Make liability an hourly position and either suck it up when people have to work massive amounts of overtime, or just hire more people to do the work.

    Pros

    Good teamwork attitude amongst non-management employees. Stable company. Used to be more positives, but unfortunately, overall satisfaction has steadily declined.

    Cons

    Undeserved favoritism abounds. Promotions are more about who you know than what you can do. Too many long, long time employees makes for very complacent attitudes - "well, we've always done it that way". IT is horribly outdated, constricting company growth and competitiveness. Little true regard for a work/life balance. Abominable direction and communication from upper management. No growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some fresh blood, from outside Farmers, who are willing to challenge the "old" way of thinking. Invest in a new admin system that is capable of handling 21st century needs. Institute some mentoring and succession planning. Encourage more training and provide more opportunities for employees, who are willing and want to, to advance. Get more exposure to the "real" insurance world, not just the microcosm that is Farmers.

    Pros

    great people, they will train you well and pay for your licensing, matching dollar for dollar in 401k, good amount of PTO right away, flexible work week schedule, ability to move up and laterally for variety and income growth

    Cons

    hard to maintain work/life balance since it is so busy, some people have a negative connotation of insurance so do not respect your work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a good supervisor, your life will be great at work. However if there are people in your team that you can't trust and you don't have a way to speak to anyone about the shortcomings of your boss/team, you will feel stuck.
