    Pros

    Farmers Insurance has a true family atmosphere "We Are Farmers." They offer paid training to obtain Property, Casualty, Life& Health licensing, continued education and endless income potential in which I own my book of business. I am planning for my future thanks to Farmers.

    Cons

    As a successful representative of Farmers Insurance I have nothing negative to comment towards. In fact, I recommend this opportunity to everyone I meet.

    Advice to Management

    Your incentive programs are very well structured and always keep me on target for my next accomplishments whether it be a bonus or a well earned trip! Thank you Farmers for changing my life....

    Pros

    Great group of coworkers, decent amount of paid time off, 401k match.

    Hours necessary to meet expectations is inhumane at times. Often needing to pick up slack that would more appropriately placed with compliance, contracts and/or underwriting teams.

    Advice to Management

    Increase value of Product positions , add support staff, empower teams in support rolls and increase expectation of ownership in each area.

    Pros

    Good potential for earnings. you can make upwards up 500k a year and there is no limit to the amount you can make

    Cons

    Good luck making that much though. The training is sub par, and the goals are quite high. Nobody wants to work with an agent anymore. everybody does it online now

    Advice to Management

    provide better training. I don't feel like i have learned much of anything, other than how to waste away my life savings on marketing.
