    Pros

    Sky is the limit. With amazing autonomy.

    Cons

    You need to know a lot of people for the pros to be true. If you don't have a large network it will be an uphill battle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possible for everyone! Easier for some!

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    With the right district manager and the KPI's they finally instituted in 2013, owning your own insurance agency at Farmers Insurance is very rewarding. You are in charge of your own schedule (which can be good or bad), and the residual income is great.

    Cons

    Farmers will train you how to be a great insurance sales person however you should come prepared with your own background in business ownership, or be prepared to learn as you go along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training focused on owning a business would be useful.

    Pros

    Salary is constant, benefits are good. Generally, you can count on a raise every year. Good retirement/pension benefits.

    Cons

    Salary is constant. People outside the practice of law determine your staffing needs. There are some arbitrary measurements of success that are not always relevant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more flexibility to attorneys to work together and collaborate, instead of forcing interoffice competition.
