    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They try hard to be "cordial" to employees.

    Cons

    If you have a degree in a specific field (IE: IT, HR, Accounting, etc) but you are a lowly claims adjuster or underwriter, you have to excel at that job in order for you to move anywhere in the company. Your overall abilities are not looked at, only your current job performance. Difficult to move anywhere in the company unless you are picked out of the sea of employees as a "chosen one".
    If you end up having an illness or an accident and are on FMLA leave, within 2 weeks of returning to work, your employment is terminated. This has happened several times in the past couple years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at overall abilities, not just current job performance. Refrain from placing targets on peoples heads that have returned from FMLA leave.

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

    Pros

    I was able to obtain my licenses to sell insurance very quickly. My boss is flexible with my schedule when needed. Training comes in the form of instructional videos followed by on line testing for the office procedures. There is a separate module for licensing.

    Cons

    There is very little to do to occupy my time. There are no co-workers to learn from or interact with. I feel that if I were to have interaction with other employees who hold my position in other offices I would have a better idea of what this position entails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think my manager has done his very best to give me all the tools needed to perform my position to the best of my abilities.
