    I have been working at Farmers Automobile Insurance

    Pros

    It pays OK for the area, they are flexible on schedule, flex time is available if needed on an occassional basis.

    Cons

    It seems that it is not how good a job you do, it''s really "who" you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the people who take advantage of the system, and look at the time they are actually working.

    I have been working at Farmers Automobile Insurance

    Pros

    It's a large company that has name recognition making it easier for customers and clients to trust you. The compensation for being an agent isn't capped.

    Cons

    The server we work on is constantly being changed. It doesn't work with Firefox! There is too much pressure from management to sell sell sell even if it's not in the best interest of your client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop saturating the market with so many agents and start supporting the ones that you have on board already! The constant changes to db really just make it confusing for most.

    I worked at Farmers Automobile Insurance full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Other than the occasional supervisor observations, you are on your own. You manage your work load. Good training program. Opportunities to move about within the company after a few years.

    Cons

    Farmers uses software and hardware from the 20th century, and it makes being efficient darn near impossible. My opinion is that Farmers doesn't play fair with the body shops - They use their size to their advantage, and the shops have a tendency to let you know it. You are given time on your schedule to take lunch, but you better bring lunch, because if you take your lunch, you'll always be behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real laptops with 4G. Separate as much of the claims adjusting from the claims estimating as possible.

    I worked at Farmers Automobile Insurance as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    You own your own business. The program has become more manageable in the last year. If you can do the program to the letter you can have a wonderful future

    Cons

    You have to ask a lot more questions than I did. The program when I entered was it's beginning and the requirements were unreasonable (as I found out later) They have since adjusted the quotas to a more manageable amount. They also recruited me and then the day on contract signing changed things that we were promised. Ask questions!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest in the recruiting phase.
    And more compassionate when we fall.

    Pros

    40 hour week if you bust your ass. Good benefits.

    Lots of phone calls, staring at a computer screen and taking statements from people who have been in car accidents all day long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, because you are doubling the size of the company.

    slow down on all the changes or make them all at once. Too volatile all the time.
