    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Facility: New WH office much better than old Simi location. Ample parking.
    2. Benefits:particularly vacation and pension for older employers

    Cons

    Cons:

    Key Highlights:

    1. High Turnover. Key employees left due to Corrupt directors, AVPs, etc! Totalitarian dictatorship. Micro management. Questionable practices that could possibly be unethical and/or illegal.

    2. Double standards and discrimination is the norm for some directors, managers. Favoritism is out of control beyond regular corporate politics.

    3. Toxic culture of throwing people under the bus, which stifles innovation and growth.
    Employees are afraid to speak up in fear of retribution. Unless you are a yes man, they will make your life a living hell.

    4. Without accountability from Sr. Leaders, some directors show lack of basic human treatment downwards while acting the opposite when dealing with upward (sr. leaders).

    5. No clear standards for promotion. See #3 above for the real standard.

    6. Weak HR.... non-existent really. Its really just a front. Support Mgmt 100% of the time. Has no presence or power to be mediator.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get new set of positive managers, directors, AVPs that are bright and task-oriented.
    2. Add 360 evaluation. Managers chave free reign and abuse their power. With a very weak HR
    3. Implement Checks & Balance --> Bolster HR to actually play and to keep the corrupt managers in check.
