    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Leadership , you build your own career , Growth , Company cares about its employees work environment. The training is amazing. The first day I started with farmers insurance group alot of people showed me around and where very helpful, also very friendly. Even though you are doing your own work the teamwork is awesome.

    Cons

    Health Benefits are outrageous expensive. The compensation is ok , I do believe that It could be more for our base salary but for sales agents we make commission so over all the compensation is pretty good , what you put in you will get out. I do think a longer lunch period would be helpful its hard to get down to the cafeteria and eat in 30 min especially when it it busy.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a very well-known company, with a solid foundation. They have been successful, even when the economy took a turn for the worse. They have recently changed the corporate vision and are now looking to the front-line to suggest process improvements, which is critical these days!

    Cons

    The vision has recently changed, and the process of converting such a large organization has bumps in the road, as you might imagine. The IT infrastructure is....lacking. Again, such a large organization is hard to make huge changes, but it's necessary in this day and age.

    Pros

    Pick a spot that you want to end up and they will help you get there. Hall of Fame Training and Development Company. C-suite really listens and tries to make a difference.

    Cons

    They are slowly making the transition to be more work/life family. Some business units have it and others are getting there. Large company, so that is understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more opportunities for work/life balance including working remotely, flexible schedules and etc. Make sure those that are good managers remain in the positions and allow for promotional opportunities for people that don't want to be managers, but want to make a difference.
