    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group (Less than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really great place to work at where management is awesome and where they care about you. The training is a lot, but they really try to help you understand the material and how to deal with agents. There are a lot of advancement opportunities as long as you work hard and do what you're supposed to do. The support is amazing and they seem to truly care. There are also little things they do for their employees to boost moral and have fun such as floor or team parties and potlucks. Best place I've worked for!

    Cons

    Agents can be brash and rude at times when calling on behalf of their client's, but supervisors are supportive and on our side.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! This is an awesome place to work.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The professional atmosphere in the Actuarial Department created a friendly and pleasant place for working in teams. There were opportunities to grow and profit sharing incentives.

    Cons

    On a few occasions mergers and acquisitions created situations where recent work no longer had relevance to continuing operations. However, this is a reasonable occurrence as companies strive to remain competitive in a aggressive market place.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare employees for anticipated changes. this however is easier said than done because some changes must remain confidential until negotiations are complete.

    Pros

    Great work environment, positive attitude, and there is plenty of room for collaboration. Also job security is pretty high.

    Cons

    Not too many cons about this company. It's hard to make the big bucks anywhere, be patient and it'll come with time.

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Unlimited Opportunities. At the age of 25, I was my own boss and building a business from scratch. I controlled how much money I did or did not make. I run another business so you can control your schedule and have plenty of time to spend time with family. You have no one to answer to but yourself. I absolutely loved my trainer and district manager.

    Cons

    The company has an awful line of communication, calling corporate was a headache and a half.

    Pros

    Good benefits and nice people, the yearly STIP plan is also nice as long as we meet goals.

    Cons

    Don't use correct job titles to describe what you are doing, so they can underpay people for doing the same job as someone with the correct title.

    Advice to Management

    Review job titles and what people are doing - need to start paying your people what they are really worth and for the job they are actually doing.
