No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Freedom of your schedule (so they say)

Cons

No training, first customers are your learning guinea pigs, they pitch a great opportunity and freedom in your schedule, but in all reality you will work sun up to sun down and everything in between with no clue where to start or what to do.

Advice to Management

Train your people, they represent your company

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Credit Union, Many locations to work for.

    Cons

    Micro managed, the rules were so strict it was like being in grade school. There was a zero level of trust between management and staff. Way too much Nepotism.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is no leadership or management so you can really do as you please.

    Cons

    They have no clarity of vision on who their client is or how to develop products and pricing. Leadership is nothing more than people that type Excel spreadsheets. They have no idea of how to help an agent succeed. Company is also not very consumer friendly as documented by numerous JD Powers reports. Losing market share, poor conversion ratios and concerns about loss ratios.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Bring in people that know what they are doing and how to get there. Stop promoting from within.
