    Nice perks. Salary was fair.

    Undocumented processes. To much finger pointing rather than finding solutions to issues.

    Set expectations. Minimize exceptions.

    Pros

    Most of the people here are nice. They have a lot of company events/celebrations to break up the day. They offer a fair amount of overtime, but it is not mandatory.

    Cons

    It's a call center. You are on the phone all day. Some callers are nice, but some are horrible. Calls can last an hour while you try to figure out the answer, because it's difficult to get help from others who are also taking calls.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more Floor Support, especially to new hires and for longer than a week after they hit the floor.

    Pros

    The people I work with are amazing. Their training program is top of the line. Farmers' renowned reputation makes it a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Many of the marketing systems and leads come out of your own pocket. Definitely for someone with and entrepeneurial mindset. Money that comes out of your pocket, is hard to get back in commissions. You are technically working 24/7. Not for most people.

    Advice to Management

    Please be up front with expectations, the job description, and the monetary works.

    Pros

    Great people, great money, great life stile. Flexible schedule and if you work you make money you just have to work.

    Cons

    Quota. That is literally the only thing I don't like but at the same time its such an easy quota to make that you shouldn't be worried.

    Advice to Management

    You guys already do a great job. but try and take some time to get to know the new guys.
