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

Pros

Freedom and POSSIBLE (but not likely) high pay

Cons

In my time working as an agent for Farmers Insurance, I dedicated all of my time to getting policies in the door. Unfortunately, Farmers is a higher priced insurance company in comparison. Selling policies is not always that easy to do. You have a quota monthly, and if you do not meet it, you are let go. Initial thought is to get your family to switch so that you can make your numbers. Once you bring everyone you know on board and meet your first quota, you pass the "training" period. They begin to pay you subsidy.

Long story short... If you miss your quota, you are required to pay back your subsidy (could be thousands), they now have the income from all your family, you cannot take those policies to another company for one year, and all the money that you made you are either paying back or you spent on advertising (which is not cheap).

They will try and talk you into why it is a great company. Don't buy it. Stay far away.

    Pros

    Some departments had great direction for your career while others just straggled where they were. Great people. Benefits were pretty decent

    Cons

    Communication. HR was not involved at all in developing your career. They're ok if you stay where you are. COMPENSATION is horrible. I was there for quite a bit and they barely had me in my bracket.

    Pros

    Depending on which way the wind would blow, you could possibly work from home

    Cons

    well lets see I was treated like the red-headed step child but they needed you to clean up their pile of mess! Oh, and how they tried to cover up the fact they weren't especially fond of african americans.
