    I have been working at North Carolina Farm Bureau Insurance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    NC Farm Bureau got its start in helping the farming community. As such, they are very family oriented, upper management knows you by name, and they work hard to keep everyone in the "family" happy and satisfied.

    Cons

    They are a bit behind the times technology wise. We are still taking recorded statements with cassette tapes and they JUST moved to a computer based claims system since I began working there in Jan of 2013. Prior to that all claims records were done on paper, with a very outdated and complicated computer system for the minimal checks you could do on the claim. They are like 10 plus years behind the times and they are in NO hurry to change that. Checks are still generated for ALL claims, no EFT even to body shops. It is a very SLOW process for getting claims to a resolution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the family atmosphere, co-workers and upper management genuinely care about you as a person. However, the company should move more quickly toward getting technology where it should be in line with the competitors.

    Pros

    You will get plenty of opportunity to work very hard here. There are good people working here but the company is not a good place to be.

    Cons

    Depending on the office you work in you may not get to know your coworker's names before they get fed up and leave this place. Lots of turnover. Excessive workloads are made worse by having to pick up the workloads of those who find better places to work. Plan on working much more than anyone else you know who works in this industry for another company. For much less pay. Company management ignores the turnover issue and does nothing to help struggling employees survive in their jobs. "New" programs which are obsolete and add a lot of extra time to complete a task, yet add nothing to the quality of the task. They just add extra time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough people to get the work done.
