I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They have a great atmosphere, the people that work in the office are pretty positive people. The training has been comprehensive. I hear them saying all the things that I want them to say. They have free literature to distribute to prospects.

Cons

It is commission sales and so as the guy said on the first day you eat what you kill. There is the possibility that you can make it, but it is hard work. I'm not impressed with the products, they have for sale, everything seems expensive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The products have to compete with the best.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time

    Pros

    You have the potential to own your own business if you can get through the training and find ways to get clients.

    Cons

    The rates for home and auto change when there have been a lot of claims in your area. If you start this job like I did when Farmers had many claims on homes the rates go up and the rates are less competitive it makes you less attractive to potential candidates who already have insurance.
    READ the fine print on your contract. I sent my resignation by email and my post wasn't terminated for several months. Now I have a bill from THIS district office that says I owe them money for a canceled policy after I resigned.

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunity for advancement. Generally dedicated to employee welfare and personal/professional development.

    Cons

    1. Disconnected senior management frequently changes things just to put their own mark on things.
    2. Archaic profit sharing plan tied to unrealistic performance reviews.
    3. Micro management in some areas.
