    Pros

    Great business, especially for moving up in the company. Loved the people who work with you as well! Very welcoming place and company to work for.

    Cons

    Have to clock everything you do, including bathroom breaks. It's very embarrassing because you get penalized if you go on a bathroom break. What if your pregnant, or have a weak bladder, that really sucks.

    Advice to Management

    I would just say keep up the moral. Happy employees mean more work being done. Being penalized for taking bathroom breaks really disturbs me.

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule and plenty of vacation days. Great team atmosphere.

    Pros

    Performance driven process of stepping up the ladder for being considered for District Manager position(s). One of 'Best-in-Class' companies in the insurance industry in America. Company trips for achievements are first class and only those that earn them are invited. Also, many management meetings/trips are also with first class lodging, food and various amenities that includes first class entertainment.

    Cons

    Long hours; transitions into full 1099 entrepreneur type ownership of your district operations. Stressful at times; but, if you are self driven to achieve success, "positive stress" can be the "fuel" that drives you on your pathway to reaching any and all of your goals!!! --((Listed under 'Cons' because some people can't deal with very much stress'.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to give more helpful training etc.


  7. High stress. Competitive pay but difficult to move around because positions do not open often

    Pros

    Good experience overall. Depending on the boss, can move up and around without too much difficulty. The bonus is nice. Great incentive program for commuters to use the train.

    Cons

    Can be extremely long hours at any given time of year. If you don't live in LA, the commute is treacherous.

    Advice to Management

    No

    Pros

    Company that cares about it's customers, educates you (the employee) to best suit needs of the consumer rather than the company.

    Cons

    Other companies advertising presence made customers wary of the value of Farmers Insurance, it was sometimes hard to explain why other companies were making claims of cheap pricing while convincing our customers they were valued

    Advice to Management

    I think that public perception plays such a large role in reaching and maintaining customers, I saw a significant increase in inquiries within the company after on air advertisements increased.
