Management Changes are frequent

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group

ProsCompetitive salaries and opportunities. They do thorough investigations of claims in commercial casualty, but personal lines needs to do the same.

ConsChanging from performance driven reviews to behavior based has been frustrating and appears to be a way to save the company money by potentially giving lower raises. It's so drastically different, even management is struggling with it. Upper management keeps changing middle management.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more clear with behavior based expectations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Farmers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group

ProsUnlimited income, great training at the university of farmers. They really want you to succeed as long as you are willing to put in the work.

Consno matter what they tell you, you should be prepared to spend some money to help get your agency started. The subsidy that you get is nice, but be very careful and invest it right back into your business.

Farmers Insurance

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Farmers Insurance Group

ProsFreedom to work my own schedule. The district manager was very helpful and supportive.

ConsDifficult job to do; the prices are not competitive; therefore, it was hard to make a sale and to compete against other carriers.

Great people to work with but job itself is strenous both emotionally and phisically.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time

ProsThe people in the Tucson office are great people to work with and they provide you with a lot of guidance. Management does a great job in helping you and providing you with support. Great training program.

ConsThe job itself is hard since you are dealing with individuals who are injured and want things resolved at their time. This does not help with the amount of work that is given to you. Individuals left our office and we were considered over-staffed even if we were working 45+ hours a week.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider work-life balance for regular employees and management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Depends on your department

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Wilmington, DE

I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSome departments had great direction for your career while others just straggled where they were. Great people. Benefits were pretty decent

ConsCommunication. HR was not involved at all in developing your career. They're ok if you stay where you are. COMPENSATION is horrible. I was there for quite a bit and they barely had me in my bracket.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
