    Pros

    The company offers great benefits. They also do drawings for many sports tickets.

    Cons

    Personal growth can be discouraging as a young person because many employees have tenure and it can be difficult to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees on a personal level.

    I worked at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are great people there with lots of potential. Company values are good, but seem to be fading fast.

    Cons

    The higher you go the more games are played. Sr. Management has no idea what is going on in the trenches. Company's financial condition has deteriorated (A.M. Best Rating lowered...again), and lots of clients are leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up before it is too late.

    I worked at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, company car, benefits. Company respects employees work/life balance.

    Cons

    No training program. Antiquated systems. High expectation with only 3 months experience. Farm policies are especially confusing and even the management is not sure how they should be interpreted. No real claims handling guideline, which makes consistency unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in clams training. Promote consistency across the board (and not on a case by case basis). Reward the good employees and ewes out the dead weight.

    Cons

    They rely to heavily on Life insurance. Their rates on P&C are too high and they don't care about clients that had been with them for 20+ years.They are losing more clients then they are gaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your managers more accountable for themselves and the way they conduct themselves.
