    Pros

    Not just focused on business , but supports employees who are involved in community service. Well compensated and good focus on developing employees.

    Cons

    A lack of mobility can limit options for advancement so I'd like to see mobility be less of a focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvements could be made to the technology used for everyday work.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Farmers is known for having a top-rated training program. All the supervisors that I have encountered have been encouraging and helpful where my own career development is concerned.

    Cons

    Management level above supervisors are a bit disconnected from day to day functions. They can seem detached and inaccessible at times. In some departments, the work load seems intentionally overwhelming. As of late, opportunities to advance have dried up. Several qualified applicants within the company are stuck in their current positions with few opportunities for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be helpful to address that lack of supervisory positions. It seems that most supervisor positions are only available to those who are currently supervisors wishing to make a lateral move.

    Compared to most companies (personal experience and from friends) the benefits are good. Bonus program, 401K, paid time-off, are better than most large companies

    Cons

    Organizational structure has too many layers.
