I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great job out of college, was fun a lot of times and you learn a lot about liability car insurance, things you wouldn't know otherwise. Company paid for 2 months of training, including travel. They were always promoting to get involved in whatever direction you want to go with the company, plenty of room for growth! Pay raise after one year and a small bonus.

Cons

Really the only downside was the "numbers" you were expected to achieve. I understand it's the only way for them to set standards and to give incentive to getting the job done quicker, and several other things...but this is where corporate guidelines come in that most of the time don't make sense on the ground level. Felt some things were slightly unethical in obtaining these numbers. The other downside is that you have to talk to people involved in accidents that are flat out liars and you know are screwing the system-and its disgusting and so wrong. I couldn't stand talking to such fowl people-that's just a personal preference...of course you got to save the day for good people too!

Advice to Management

Listen to what your reps are telling you and actually take active to implement it on a local level vs. always trying to get something approved through corporate. If it works great, if it doesn't keep moving on until you find the best answer!

    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are fantastic. The claims are interesting.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management, there have been complaints about retaliation, if they do not like you they will find a way to fire you (ethically or not), they pulled all the remote people in, they will micromanage you to the point of breaking and they ask for feedback but do nothing with it. They will do anything to keep you from going to another department.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone in management and start over; you couldn't do worse than you are now. Definitely get rid of people who are perceived as vindictive and retaliatory in management. They will never recover from this perception.
