    I worked at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance full-time

    Pros

    There are some really great people who work here in all parts of the business.

    Cons

    Culture is pretty stagnant. Technology does not move forward very quickly. Very conservative company which could be a great pro for some.

    I have been working at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance full-time

    Pros

    I liked the majority of the people I worked with and my co-workers were very helpful. Most people were genuine and the benefits package was decent.

    Cons

    Way too many computer programs; Payment entry system is an out of date, obsolete program similar to DOS (1970's). Management communicates poorly and is opposed to change. The company is VERY unorganized and lacks proper training for their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more employee training; better communication; more organization; improve technology. Change is necessary to grow.

    Pros

    Easy job if you are willing to meet new people and continue to work the phones.

    Cons

    Being a Direct Writer makes it difficult if market pricing changes. You get a book a business that has been picked over by multiple agents and often deal with customers saying you are my new agent and I wonder how long you will last.

    Pros

    Well priced on p&c products. The company provides CSRs that are well trained.

    Cons

    Life products are a little high. Can only really produce on premier products but have to go to company hired specialist for any higher risk policies. There is a rift between company employed CSRs and independent/commissioned agents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give agents more freedoms to insure without having to write thru rural because it is a hindrance to thru rural
