Pros

Great family and community feel with colleagues willing to collaborate and share information. Great work-life balance and support from company to achieve it.

Cons

Insurance is a conservative industry so there is not a lot of dynamism in terms of innovation and the company culture is slow to adapt.

    Lack of competent leadership, unrealistic expectations.

    Pros

    Due their excellent initial training, it's a good place to start out in insurance. If you're willing to relocate througout the region, there is unlimited upward potential within.

    Cons

    Upon completion of the aforementioned excellent training...forget most of it, your supervisor wants you to do it their way.

    In my first year (of two) at Farmers I had 4 different supervisors and 3 liability manages. Each supervisor had their own preferred method of handling claims that they expected you to adhere to. No big deal except that every periodic review (grading) of my claims handling ability was done by a succeeding supervisor of claims managed while I was under a previous supervisor. Unfortunately, succeeding supervisors didn't fully appreciate the way that I handled claims per the expectations of my previous supervisors. Repeat, repeat, repeat...

    Sound confusing? Good. Welcome to Farmers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get realistic. Get consistent. Get competent. If the majority of your claims representatives aren't meeting your metric expectations, maybe the problem is you.
