    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group

    Pros

    Great Company that really has quality insurance and takes good care of their customers. Very good training for new agents. Lot's of hard work and patience will lead to a decent income.

    Cons

    Prices are not always competitive especially on the commercial side.

  2. Employees' work/life balance is the least concern of leadership.

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits, good co-workers

    Cons

    Leadership is misleading. The ability to wear jeans and tshirts, inexpensive trinkets, food and sweets such as candy, etc. are presented as an expression of Farmers caring about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees and don't tell them what you think they want to hear. Make the work environment more professional.

    Pros

    I worked as a recruiter for Farmers Insurance District Office in Granada Hills. It was a great experience. The District Manager really wanted me to learn and advance myself. He provided me with excellent direction and experience.

    Cons

    The farmers corporation has a strict quota for amount of agents the district has to put on but the district manager was so great it was not hard to meet this quota. He does everything to help you succeed in your job.

    Advice to Management

    Great experience! The district manager is very knowledgable and knows what he is doing. If you really want a job where you are going to learn and be able to work hard to get to where you want to be then this is a place to apply.

    Pros

    They are real laid back and do not micromanage. You get quite a few days off.

    Cons

    If you take unplanned PTO they ding your record for a year.

    Advice to Management

    You took away sick leave and punish when people are sick. That policy should be reversed.

  8. Be ready to invest time and money.

    Pros

    You get out of it what you put in. If you are ready to use some already established networking and selling skills this will be a good fit for you.

    Cons

    If you don't make your numbers you have to pay back a portion of your salary. In addition to that the company does very little for the customers to find you- you have to bring in all your own clients. If you want to have access to the quotes from the farmers website you have to pay $300 a month. Also finding business in San Diego that farmers will take is somewhat difficult because of all the fire risk.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier on the agents!
